That’s why we’re interested tolook at the relationship between Jakartans and their food, as it can be agood indicator of where society is going and where consumers are heading.We used Danish-based methodology, SignBank® to collect “signs”;hindsights from the past and insights from the present to see the trails ofwhat is likely to happen in the society.Some extra-kilos later, we manage to collect hundreds of signs and clusterthem into predictions about the future in the category of taste preference,social interaction, environmental responsibility, and lifestyle.

I’ve utilized creative tools to help incontinencepeople adapt with their new lifekeywords:interaction designprototypingwireframingnarrativespersonasapplied creativitycreative brainstormingapplied neurobiology conceptsAs part of a kick-ass course that combines design thinking and neurobiology ofcreativity, I was involved in a project with Coloplast to provide innovative solutionsthat can improve user’s quality of life. Through a unique creative process (seevideo), the group discovered that the core issue for people with incontinenceproblem lies on their eﬀort to deal with emotional pain.500 post-its, 47 coﬀees, and 5 brainstorming sessions later, we came up with asolution to reframe the relationship between Coloplast and their users. Simply put:from user to lover (see user journey video). To envision the ecosystem of thisframing, I prototyped some possible touch points e.g. an app and a welcome packfor discharged patients.a project for CBS Applied Creativity and Design Thinking class with Sven Timo Borg, Christina Valdorf, AnnabellGast, Malene Rolsted and Jessica IbsenCLICK FOR WIREFRAMECLICK FOR CREATIVEPROCESSCLICK FOR USER JOURNEY
