This project originally set out to explore the need of Futures Thinking for Humanitarian Scenarios from a Designer's Perspective. To do this however, I needed to investigate each of these areas of enquiry; Futures Thinking in Humanitarian Scenarios, Futures Thinking and Design Thinking, Designers using Futures Thinking and Mindfulness Practice for Design Leaders. The blog is live. It is a work in progress, with more research and new areas of enquiry coming up.
This short write up on how 3 professions add value to their clients, is based solely on personal experience and not on any research beyond these interactions. It’s also based on a mere handful of professionals that I have interacted with, or observed, over the years. What is interesting is considering how they offer value and comparing them to a design practice.
When considering trust as a design value there are a number of aspects that could be explored such as; the type of trust, levels of trust, formation and managing trust, reputation influence, impact of contracts on trust and deterrence-based trust, and many other facets.
An illustration that has been created to visualise and assemble some of the ideas put forward in Stuart Candy’s 2010 dissertation, THE FUTURES OF EVERYDAY LIFE: POLITICS AND THE DESIGN OF EXPERIENTIAL SCENARIOS.
The journey map shows 10 columns representing the 10 weeks of the service design course. The map divides these 10 columns up into emotional reflection, challenges faced, actions undertaken, and an expanded information row describing key elements for that week.
