DESIGN
THINKING
THESIS

Taking cues from data visualization and information architecture, the Human-Centered Design Process visually spells out a way to do something. From project managing to creative consulting, this step-by-step process aims to encourage innovation as it is not a fixed structure and may be changed to better encompass how one works best. This semester-long research project was finalized in a gallery exhibition complete with wall painting and oversize booklet.

The overall idea incorporates design thinking: a topic explored by big thinkers at IDEO and Stanford University. With design principles in mind, this project grew to a structure that encourages reflection of the way one works for hope on influence in future endeavors.
