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?

Thinking from the position of an Extreme User was different from how I usually generate ideas and empathy. Thinking as an extreme user made it easier to design since there was a concrete set of characteristics which narrowed down the needs and perspective.

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?

Creating stories was a great way to collaborate in a group since it got everyone in the group to interact and come with entertaining ideas. Stories gave us a direction in conceptualising the design in the storyboard.
