ARTICLE SUMMERY: Emily Stevens states “Design thinking has long been considered the holy grail of innovation—and the remedy to stagnation.” Although design thinking has it’s origins in the 1960s there is still a fair amount of confusion surrounding it.

Emily Stevens takes the time to ease some of the confusion surrounding design thinking in her article “WHAT IS DESIGN THINKING, AND HOW DO WE APPLY IT?“.

She gives an in depth look at what makes up design thinking and how to apply it. She covers the basic tenants of design thinking,

  • What is design thinking
  • What are the key principles of design thinking
  • Design thinking methodology and how to use it
  • How to apply the design thinking framework

It is a great article giving you the foundation and road map to consistent problem solving that all designers can use and a great reference to share with your fellow designers.
