I recently co-facilitated an ideation workshop at Emerson, where we used activities to generate innovative solutions. In this summary, I'll share the workshop's purpose, key aspects, and some tips for running a successful event. We aimed to align everyone's goals, encourage divergent thinking, and gain real-time input from participants.
When I started designing dashboards, I was overwhelmed. I've since learned key steps: 1) establish content, info hierarchy & jobs to be done; 2) craft stories with wireframes, layouts & data visualizations; 3) use visual design for values & emotions. Always test with real users & iterate.
Take a long, deep breath... Breathe in relaxation… Hold it for a moment… Now, exhale, slowly... Let out any tension… Feel your body relax into stillness between breaths... Do that 3 times, 10 jumping jacks, and a 30-second plank, and your brain will be ready for this post.
