WHAT IS DESIGN THINKING?
Focusing on human needs behind the problem
The design thinking process starts with the client - understanding their needs, their wants, and their challenges. The process is laid out in 5 steps: empathize, define, ideate, prototype, and test. Each iteration of this cycle produces a human - centered final product!
