Aman Gautam’s talk at Google I/O

The technology in current times has transcended boundaries, but is it relevant for the next billion? Creating value at the grassroots goes beyond the localization.

The problem solvers for the next billion usually get about 16-18 years of education, have access to larger screens, high-speed broadband connections, learning resources and so much more. But an average “Indian” looks a lot different.

Lack of empathy and knowledge of user is often the biggest reason why most projects fail.
In this talk, Aman Gautam, Co-founder of UX Gorilla an Elpis Design discussed different pitfalls, best practices and common frameworks for building an empathy for users that look nothing like you.

This talk was delivered at the recent Google I/O event where he explained how building for the Real India is a bit tricky.

Our culture and norms are different making many products which are created while keeping a certain audience in mind (with common key sets), unfit for the real Indian audience.

Design Delhi:- Event on Idea Generation

After 1 year of success, we recently conducted another Design Delhi event at 14th of April. This time we conducted a Hands-on session on Idea Generation using Design Studio Technique.

This Event was organized at 91 springboard in Gurgaon. It was a successful event with 100% attendance.

Design Studio is a time-boxed Idea generation technique that involves divergent and convergent thinking in an iterative manner. To make the workshop more interesting and challenging, we gave participants a social challenge to solve.

” How might we increase the organ donation in India”

The participants worked in a team of 4 members and learned how to generate ideas as a team.

Design Delhi Idea Generation task

The whole process followed timeboxed periods of working individually, giving feedback and working as a team. Each team went ahead with 3 iterations of sketching and feedback. The participants learned methods of receiving and giving feedback apart from ways to build on the ideas of others.

In the end, each team presented their ideas to the audience. It was a great experience to see how the ideas from one team complemented with what other teams had come up with. Another great lesson was to learn how powerful brainstorming could be if done in a right manner.

At Design Delhi’s Anniversary, we are conducting another Design Delhi Event to mark 1 year of success and this time we have something educational and stimulating for you, techy and creative peeps, out there.

Do you think that brainstorming sessions are a farce?

Do you feel that these sessions are always dominated by someone with a strong voice?

Are you someone who enjoys brainstorming sessions but in the end you do not know what to do next?

Presenting: Design Studio Methodology Meetup

Design Studio is one of the best and proven technique for Idea Generation in the fast-paced environment.
It is the classic implementation of Divergent and Convergent Thinking over a repeated cycle within a group.

Unlike the typical unproductive brainstorming sessions, Design Studio ensures everyone in the team has a voice and everyone is able to share their ideas.
Design Studio is geared towards finding solutions from the start, so you always get high-quality ideas in the end.

If you want to encourage a multidisciplinary culture in your organization where you want the clients, designers, developers, and marketers to work together to generate ideas for a new product, experience, service or campaign, then this workshop is for you.

What will you need?

An open mind, pen, and paper. This is going to be a hands-on workshop and you are going
to get some time to unplug yourself from your screens.
You will work in teams on solving an interesting problem.

Who can join?

Anyone who works with people and requires tools for effective collaboration and idea
generation. You could be a student, a UX professional, a teacher or a social worker.

We hope to see you in our Meetup

See Ya!
