The Test step of the Design Thinking process provides you with the opportunity to gather feedback about your prototype. In order to revise and refine your prototype, it’s important to understand how other people, the user, will interact with your prototype.
DURING THE TESTING STEP
- Take notes
- Record feedback
- Solicit input from a variety of sources
- Revise, Revise, Revise
It’s important to remember that your prototype will always be in a state of revision. You will have to return to the Design Thinking process multiple times as you finalize your product or solution to a problem. This is all a part of the process.
During the ‘Prototype’ stage, we asked you to create an awareness campaign by designing a t-shirt. In the ‘Test’ stage, you should share your t-shirt design with a variety of people and ask for feedback. Some things to consider when showing your design:
- Is your message clear?
- Do people like your design?
- How might the design be improved?
- How could the t-shirt appeal to a large demographic of people?
- Who is your audience?
- Does your t-shirt solve the issue addressed during the ‘Define POV’ stage?
