How do we design it? (part 2)

The process of designing the Memoby Box

The image below shows the first design of the original Memoby box. As you can see there are many different features and also bits of technology that we decided did not fit the Memoby ethos. This was at the point where we not only focused on design thinking, criteria to create the box and also the type of message Memoby wanted to deliver.

Design thinking and how I’ve used it.

I define design thinking as a process where critical and creative thinking are combined to create a new thought pattern. It’s a process that allows the users to organize information gathered and use that information in unique ways. This was the main process my team and me used when we started thinking about what we wanted for our product. We tried to fit square into circle by looking at the square in different ways.

My design process for the Memoby box

When designing the Memoby box my team and I focused on three main areas that allowed us to create a good product. The list below shows the areas of interest and the questions we asked our self’s, because we felt that if we could answer each question we could not only see the positive results but also see what we need to work on.

  • Context

What is the main issue we are tying to fix and how does aspects of culture; area, age and social class affect what the product will be.

  • Impact

How can we adapt not only the product but also how we present it to the different areas stated in the context section? How do we maximize the impact of how people view the brand?

  • Craft

How is the product improved after research to meet the needs of what the consumers? What is the process we take to make these improvements?

 

How would you create a great product? I believe that design thinking is a process that should be implemented into everyday life, it would allow people to become more create and approach life in a different way.
