Framework Doodle / Integrative Diagram of Design Frameworks
Design frameworks help guide and align various design functions, but there is no one framework that suits every project. Instead of being caught up in buzz words/frameworks such as Human Centered Design (HCD) or Double Diamonds (DD), I decided to reflect deeply on how the various frameworks speak to the same process with different emphases.
Some of the resources I refer to are:
HCD & DD - The Design of Everyday Things by Don Norman
Problem vs. Solution Space - Product Management for Startups by Dan Olsen
Exploratory, Generative & Evaluative Research - Universal Methods of Design by Bella Martin & Bruce Hanington
Needs vs. Resources - A Community Tool Box on Needs & Resources Assessment
I'm starting my career and this diagram really only is the start of a living hypothesis that needs to be instantiated by tons of experience with real case studies. If you have any reflection or insights to share, drop me a line below- I’d love to learn from you!
