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?

Extreme users can be really inspiring and to spur wild ideas, it differs from the way we usually used for generating ideas and empathy. It requires the designer to have an understanding of user’s needs and gather insights about their point of views. Drawing inspiration from the users’s  perspective, and define the needs and characteristics that users may have. This assist us pull out meaningful needs that may not pop when we use questionnaire or interview to generate ideas.

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?

Yes, provocation cards and storyboard is really helpful for the work through ideas and collaborate with y group members. It is useful to help us to jump out of box,  getting more ideas deeply, the following is shown the extreme character that we created.
