Jumping to a fresh cycle of innovation design

Paul Hobcraft

If You Want To Learn Problem Solving, Learn From Designers

Game-Changer

My response: If you want to learn about problem solving, learn from designers. Design for me isn’t about how pretty something looks, but how it works. I don’t write a lot about design in this blog but I do have a very deep respect and admiration for it. One big influence in my life was my Grandfather, who was a multidisciplinarian: designer, maker and architect. This is why I believe you should learn from designers if you want to learn problem solving.

The High Art of Designing Scaffolding

Mills-Scofield

A modern variation of a similar design used in the recent restoration of the Sistine Chapel ceiling.[2].

When designing an effective jig, consideration must be given to the path through which the bit or blade will pass, and how the piece is fixed, but it must also do so in a safe manner.

Designing the New Customer Experience

I would argue that it will be those who design the best NEW customer shopping experience given these constraints and rules.
