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?

Including extreme users is a hard job. For myself, when coding program, the extreme users’ requirement are also extremely hard. Especially overloading and elastic requirements. In this class, we designed a scene that describe the after-war world, the extreme environment leads special utility of phone booth. It has pill sending function to communicate other survivors. So, it is obviously different to generating general ideals.

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?

The storyboard is a very useful tool to help us describe our ideas, especially when we could not got other members’ imagination. Telling a story is a job that easy come and easy go, it is hard to remember it. Therefore, the story recording literal is helpful.
