How narrative intelligence can help everyone design solutions and generate useful data.


Karen Dietz's insight:

I really like how this author, Denise Withers, talks about how our narrative intelligence (our knowledge of story structure, and our story thinking ways) can be applied in business to solve problems, help decision making, and be used as another design process to improve innovation.


Love it, love it. These points apply to any business or nonprofit. Withers shares anecdotes to make her points, and offers great advice.


As an aside -- my friend and story colleague Madelyn Blair and I were just talking the other day about narrative intelligence and a book she'd like to write about it with another story colleague Denise Lee. Get busy Madelyn and Denise! We need that book :))

Sometimes it's worth just going back to the basics. And this is one of those times. My students - yes you, Team! - take note, please.

"Every year, we put together an overview of the current iteration of the design process we’re teaching, along with some of our most-used tools. The guide was originally intended for recent graduates of our Bootcamp: Adventures in Design Thinking class. But we’ve heard from folks who’ve never been to the d.school that have used it to create their own introductory experience to design thinking.  The Bootcamp Bootleg is more of a cook book than a text book, and more of a constant work-in-progress than a polished and permanent piece." 

Jim Lerman's insight:

The Bootcamp Bootleg is a free resource from the Stanford dschool (design school) that leads viewers through the entire design process. An outstanding resource for implementation.

Information graphics or infographics are graphic visual representations of information, data or knowledge intended to present complex information quickly and clearly.

The process of creating infographics can be referred to as data visualization, information design, or information architecture. In newspapers, infographics are commonly used to show the weather, maps, site plans, charts and graphs for statistical data.

 

These infographic element kits are all editable vector shapes in organized file formats, for use in presentation, print files or web site graphics.

A Guide to Infographic Elements

A Guide to Infographic Elements | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

When it comes to visualizing data, it’s important to pick the right graph and the right kind of data range. Make it too detailed, and information gets lost and the reader leaves confused. Too simplified, and your data’s integrity is weakened.

 

Choosing the right infographic element shouldn’t be an art but common sense. After all, it’s an infographic – readers should get the gist of things at first glance and not have to get crossed-eyed in making sense of things...

People who create infographics do their work partly because they believe infographics are a great way to communicate information.

 

Since the people in this field also need to communicate information about their work, it was inevitable that infographics about infographics would eventually be created. Here are 11 of those meta infographics.

THE DESIGN GYM Handout Deck

This is our methodology at The Design Gym.
Jim Lerman's insight:

The Design Gym is a relatively new, compact design firm in NYC that takes the process very seriously and has developed some clever and innovative ways to engage itself in the marketplace. This page contains a slideshare on the basic components of how these folks conceive of the design process. It's very nicely put together; and don't miss the "Presentation Transcript" below. It offers a kind of stream-of-consciouness narrative to elaborate on each of the slides.

45 Design Thinking Resources For Educators ~ TeachThought | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

"In education, design thinking empowers students to realize that they can create their own futures by borrowing frameworks from other areas, which allows them to design their own participation and experiences. For example, game designer Katie Salen has talked about her students experiencing video game design and implementing those principles into the classroom; she said her students interact within a framework that allows them to take on social challenges as designers."

My favorite quote here is' I provide the tools, its up to you what you do with them'. This video certainly had me rethinking PowerPoint. Clearly I need to learn to use it better. This was a very skillful presentation that was created only using PowerPoint.

Visual Design: Understanding Color Theory and the Color Wheel

Visual Design: Understanding Color Theory and the Color Wheel | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

Sometimes the toughest step in building a new website or redesign can be the conceptual ones. Selecting a color palette is one of them that can be tough if you don’t have the right tools. So where do you start?


 

It all comes down to basic color theory and the color wheel. That same tool that teachers used in school really is the basis for how designers plan and use color in almost every project from the simplest web page to expansive brands with multiple sites and campaigns...
