Design Research: Thoughts on Problem Finding & Problem Framing

For the past few months, our amazing OCAD U MDes SFI team has been working towards the design of new solutions for early childhood learning in urban slums. The first part of our project focused on design research: stakeholder analysis, developing empathy for stakeholders, building personas, journey mapping, and identifying areas for innovation.

Some of our work is shown below (licensed via Creative Commons), including a video piece we put together talking about the human-centred design process and how it impacted our framing of the early childhood learning challenge.
