1. How did taking the position of an Extreme User influence your thinking in relation to the design challenge? Was it different to how you usually generate ideas and empathy?
Doing the design challenge, as an extreme user, made us thought of different perspective in design making. We choose the Money Spinners, and we should be focusing our thought around money and interest. When we make the decision, we continuously thought whether it will make me (the money spinner) gain more money or not, and it change on how we usually design things. When we usually design something, our own interest and taste sometimes involve in it. In this tutorial, we can learn how other people think, especially the extreme user, and make sense of it.
2.Did any of the other design thinking techniques (design provocation cards, stories, storyboards, etc.) help you to work through ideas and collaborate with your group members?
As we gathered around, stories and storyboards assisted us to communicate each of our ideas. They also make us understand better other people Money Spinners’ characters, which really help us to build the design that works for all of us.
