You've probably heard of Design Thinking in UX, but what does it mean? Approaching a problem by practising Design Thinking enables us to see the problem from a different perspective. Instead of reaching to a design conclusion/solution to a problem based on human intuition we can surface deeper problems by using an iterative process."Design thinking is a human-centered approach to innovation that draws from the designer's toolkit to integrate the needs of people, the possibilities of technology, and the requirements for business success."How is this possible? And how can you apply and practice it? Design Thinking deepens your understanding of who the people are your designing for and to define their core needs objectively. By building empathy, testing concepts and challenging your assumptions, Design Thinking as a state of mind and a process that can unlock the secrets hidden within your product or service.The Design Thinking process looks like this: Empathise, Define, Ideate, Prototype, Test.Keep in mind that Design Thinking process is not a linear one.

But I think, that's the whole fun of it.Learnt from the people mastering Design Thinking as an approach.Thanks for reading. Did you find this post useful?
