​​When I started this IG journey, I wanted to share what my life as a product designer in the city of LDN is like, and that’s what I want to continue to do on this account ​😇​

Understand where you need to go, then, how to get there  My recent post on creating a POV (Point of View) /Problem Statement explains how to create a vision, a North Star which will guide your design thinking project. But, how can you break your POV down to something digestible?
Hypothetical: your company is trying to improve cycling mobility in London city
Point of View may look something like this:  "People cycling in London City need a better, safer and efficient riding experience, because safety among cyclists will encourage more people to cycle, which will reduce congestion which is better for the environment."
Applying How Might We to break down the complexity  HMW will help you answer POV innovatively while addressing your users, their needs and your insights about them, guide your decision making.
"The goal shouldn't be trying to find needles in the haystack – the goal should be how to clear the haystack so we can see the needles."
How Might We write the questions then?  "How might we make the roads safer for cyclists?"  Above is an example of how we could create a HMW from our POV.
