Design Week 4 Notes Problem Seeking Great ideas can come from: turning everyday objects into new things, taking inspiration from nature, observing cultural history, and objects found in museums. Vocabulary: Convergent thinking: linear progression; going for a goal that you’ve already thought about; focused Divergent thinking: involves an unpredictable process; very broad thinking involved that is thought of as “open-ended” Brainstorming: important for convergent and divergent thinking; a number of techniques that help you explore different ideas when going through the design process Here are four ways to brainstorm ideas o Make a list of all the things that come to your mind when you think of your design o Use a thesaurus to develop an idea and realize its potential o Try to find the connections between your ideas and research; don’t allow an idea to “starve”, feed it by connecting other ideas to it and trying to make it all a success! o Keep a sketchbook of all your ideas and refer to everything you’ve recorded when you need info or inspiration; this can help improve your work and thought process Maquette: a 3D sketch Model: a small version of a big design Prototype: has a lot of room for improvement but serves as a fully functional “test” The basic steps to convergent thinking (think PROSE) o Identify a Problem o Go do your Research o Choose on your Objective o Figure out a Strategy o Execute it o Evaluate what you came up with A good problem needs to be important, considerate of the issues of society, easy to understand, free of restrictions, and original. Use visual an verbal research to develop your ideas Expanding you interests is a great way to become a better artist The design process can be narrowed down to four basic steps: o What is it that we want to achieve? o What designs that are already around resemble the design we want? o What sets our designs apart from the designs that already exist? o How to we put our new designs and the most influential designs of the past together?
