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?

    The Extreme User has a very prominent characteristic which is easy to limit me in some specific items and scenarios, so it is different and difficult  compares to my general thinking of design ideas. However, it is also an interesting experience of  setting a character with specific features and the situation for him/her, to think what this person will think, what kind of things he/she would like to see.

  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, the storyboards based on the story we created is fun and easy to attract the attention of others. It is also helped generating ideas since there is always something come up with our mind to make it better or unique when we do painting. After each of our members finished the storyboard, we learned things from others’ which inspired us on different aspects in design thinking.
