Design. Think. Make. Break. Repeat : A Handbook of Methods
Design. Think. Make. Break. Repeat. provides a comprehensive collection of 60 methods applicable to any design innovation project. This handbook provides a flexible, interactive learning resource for anyone interested in learning about design thinking methods and their use for product and service innovation. It includes easy-to-follow exercises for each method along with ready-to-use templates and tools, case studies and design challenges. The book features 60 methods that were selected from across the design disciplines of product design, service design, design innovation, interaction design and user experience design. The easy-to-navigate structure of the book allows people new to design to learn about methods at their own pace and in their own time. For the practising designer, the book is an excellent reference guide: the overview allows them to quickly identify which methods they might need to apply depending on the phase of their own design project.
