work time!

as you continue to make community connections and talk to end-users, begin to transition into the ideation phase. it’s totally fine to keep learning about your audience, contexts, and subject matter, but that needs to start giving way to potential solutions that address the issues as you see them developing. your first round of prototypes will be due wednesday, oct 3.

new work
for friday: do the readings and prepare your provocations for your classmates.

wed sept 26: work day – in the field, in the studio, desk crits, etc.

friday sept 28: no class – jon key department-wide workshop.

for wed, oct 3: first round prototypes due. these can be “rapid” but should be understandable enough to your audience that they can comment on them and provide feedback. these can be systems diagrams, cardboard models, preliminary printed designs, etc, but should be as visual and “thing-like” as possible. the goal here is to create a rough approximation of the real thing so users can test and provide useful input. the next step beyond this will be to test your prototypes with audience members.
