What is this?
Below are fast pace exercises that guide you through a full human-centered design thinking cycle. Although it’s not a linear process, participants will get to experience the five modes: empathy, define, ideate, prototype and test. Each pair will interview one another, come to a point of view of how they might design for their partner, ideate, and prototype a solution for their partner.

Can I choose a different topic for this exercise?
You do not have to use the example topics and can pick a new topic in which there is a lot to learn by talking to someone. The wallet project opens up a lot issues around identity, money, possessions, memories, security, loved ones, etc. The gift-giving project brings up issues of duty, love, purchasing, holidays, remembering, honoring others, etc.
Select a project that you can imagine being satisfyingly solved with singular products, services, experiences, or campaigns. While design thinking can certainly be used for systems-level issues, start with a simpler challenge.
