S3: 10 plus 10 (Total Sketches Required: 20)
Sketching is a very important method of coming up with ideas. One method for coming up with a breadth and a depth of ideas is to follow the 10 plus 10 method described in Greenberg et al. This involves sketching 10 different ideas, and then taking one of those ideas and sketching 10 different variations of it. For this sketching project, you will follow the guidelines described in Section 1.4 of the Sketching User Experiences Workbook, which you can find a PDF of here: Greenberg-10plus10-S3.pdf.
For this assignment, you must do ONE of Design Challenge 2, Design Challenge 3, or choose one from the list below. This will result in 20 sketches (10 distinct solutions to the challenge and then 10 variations of one of those solutions). You are of course welcome to practice more than that, though it is not required.
Alternative Design Challenges to the ones in Greenberg et al.:
- How can a new system support emergency medical technicians on the scene of an accident?
- How can a mobile system help people in running a marathon?
- How can a video game help educate kids in Grades 1-5 on healthy eating?
- How can farmers be supported in selling their produce at farmer’s markets?
- How could a system support travelers while on vacation?
- How could a service make airline travel more comfortable?
- How can local governments use technology to better gauge public opinion?
- How can technology help people reduce waste in their home?
