Design Libs is your go-to reference for how to write and use some of the most common design thinking exercises, practices, and methods.
We at the UX Collective know how working on side projects to make the design community stronger is a labor of love and dedication. We are excited to partner with Alexa on her Design Libs project. Here is the story behind it:
I have struggled putting pen to paper my entire life, yet one of the most important skills as a designer is written communication: being able to clearly explain your thoughts, ideas, processes, and solutions. This comes naturally to me for verbal communication, but when it comes to written communication, my brain just freezes up.
Over the years, I’ve found that starting with a template helps me kick off the writing process. Recently, I started collecting templates for different design thinking exercises, practices, and methods like “How Might We”, “Problem Statements”, and “User Stories”.
Instead of watching three movies, that I wasn’t too excited about, on my flight from Amsterdam to New York, I decided to create a place wherein people could easily reference these templates and learn how to use them.
You can check out the site here:
If there are any templates that you use and think that they could be helpful to others, please submit them!
Design Libs: the best design statement methods in one place was originally published in UX Collective on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.
