Design Exploration: Round up
A series wrap up
It's been an exciting topic discussing design exploration. The most interesting part was doing it with a case study. Although it took quite some time, but it was worth the effort.
I'd like to conclude with this statement: make design exploration an integral part of your process, whether you are exploring variations or iterating on a single solution. Make sure that your exploration is always thoughtful and thorough to achieve the best possible solutions. Gather all the necessary information, consider the pros and cons, and assess trade-offs to support your decision-making.

In the next series, I will focus more on the human skills that designers would benefit from in their jobs — often referred to as 'soft skills.' Here are some of the readings I've been using as references:
