Hi friends, I want to share the design thinking manual I created last semester called: Thinking Young. This was a project I toiled with for weeks, wondering if (in the time that I had) it would come together in the way I imagined. In the end, I was really proud of the final product. By writing this manual, I learned and internalized new methods to get "unstuck" and spur creativity. I also integrated theory from the greats who've come before me, including: Buchanan, Dorst, Brown, Lawson & Cross and Thackara. I was inspired by kids, who are some of the most creative beings among us. At their best, they are endless questioners who are unafraid and unabashed when trying something new. As design thinkers, those are all characteristics we should strive to adopt when problem solving.
