A Voyage in Design Thinking….
During our last unit in theory, we focused on Design and Poverty. The authors covered a vast range of opinions from Prahalad who proposes converting the poor into consumers to Pilloton who personally moved to the sites of her projects. The reading group was a healthy mix of idealism and capitalism.
Our assignment was to create a storyboard including the opinions of all the authors. Although we were not plotting the authors to a scale like usual, I found this was still a helpful exercise for processing. What I loved about creating a story was that it provided a clear opportunity to identify a hero.
