September 22, 2014 Krista Donaldson Design Kit

Last Friday, the nonprofit arm of IDEO, launched Design Kit, a set of mindsets, methods, and case studies to learn a practical, repeatable approach to arriving at innovative solutions. The kit includes everything from a Business Model Canvas to Brainstorming Guides to Funding Strategies.

According to, “human-centered design is all about building a deep empathy with the people you’re designing for; generating tons of ideas; building a bunch of prototypes; sharing what you’ve made with the people you’re designing for; and eventually putting your innovative new solution out in the world.”
