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?

By taking the position of an extreme user, it allows me to empathise with users and understand what they are thinking. It helps people to collect information about users’ needs and interests when designing. This practice provides us an opportunity to have a clear view on users’ perspective which is important to designers.

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?

Storyboards helps us a lot. With this technique, we can understand the ideas and concepts better. It is an efficient and useful way to work through our ideas and collaborate with my group members. Comparing with words, the storyboards are more intuitive which means we can understand the ideas easily.
