A framework for empathy in design: With the right catitude, anything is pawsible

Hosted by Hippo Digital

We all know that cats can be a menace sometimes, but how does this change our approach to design?

Using methods and tools that put the user at the forefront of product design and development, we will take the participants through the user-centred design process to create a service that works.

In this workshop, participants will be presented with a scenario and equipped with the tools to design a way to solve a fictional problem. They will explore the fundamental principles of user-centred design, learning how to understand and empathise with the user.

From user needs to empathy mapping to prototyping, this session is one to get your claws into and leave you feline good.
