Cultural Probes

In preparation for our research in China we developed a set of cultural probes to send to the Chinese students beforehand. This way the students had time to get into the topic and mindset. Additionally, the Cultural Probes gave us huge insights about their lives before even travelling to Beijing. We could then build our interviews on the creative exercises and had something tangible to refer to.

 

Spatial Prototypes

Building small and large scale physical prototypes helped us communicate ideas clearly and enabled us to play, iterate and adjust easily regardless of language barriers.
