Exercise – One Hundred And One

One Hundred And One

Develop a series of ideas for an item, similar to that of ‘101 uses for a dead cat’. Be exhaustive, try variations of similar ideas.

This was a useful but challenging exercise. I managed to come up with a few uses for my item (A Bourbon biscuit) but ultimately ended up asking what other people would do with it.

I used some suggestions to come up with other ideas.

I wanted to avoid just writing lists/brainstorms and try to actually visualise the ideas, but I think this limited me a bit.

Although I did more than I thought I would, I have decided to leave it for a few days and come back to it, I am hoping that stepping away for a bit will give me a fresh approach.

I have been told in the past that my design process is quite linear, this was the ideal exercise to get me to think more diversely.

Revisiting

Stepping away from this for a while did help, as did resigning to simply writing a list. Different approaches were the key to this I think.
