Design Problem Statements – What They Are and How to Frame Them?
- Unconscious desires
- Framing a design problem is the first step in a human-centered design process
- In fact, every single information is important, as a designer
All products need to meet people’s desire
Example of a design failure – Juicy machine (however in some cases, the design depends on different culture so understanding other cultures is extremely significant when designing a concept)
This connects to my THESIS project because when considering the term “depression”, each person has different situation and reason of it, so better understanding of it is crucial and essential.
Who, What, Where, Why
Using this 4Ws, I tried to find my project aim for my project. Who is the target audience, what is the problem, and why is this so important to people?
Problem I keep in my mind for my thesis project, connecting it to the 4W’s
To be honest, I’m having a lot of difficulty finding a specific target audience because depression is one of the most common mental illnesses. In other words, anyone could have a possibility of facing and suffering from it, and I have this uncomfortable feeling to the people who are not included in the target audience of my project when considering only a certain group of users. I was thinking about this since this summer. I want my project to reach as many people as possible. Therefore, I want my target audience to be in a more broad range of age.
