On March 31, 2015, Spring Studio's Linda Miller and Bruce Randall presented a quick Design Thinking workshop at the Transit+Design event, held by SPUR. SPUR is a leading civic planning organization, based in the Bay Area, well respected for their independent and holistic approach to urban issues.
The goal of the Transit+Design event was to provide a space to learn about research and design tools that can help transit professionals create a great transit user experience.
Bruce and Linda led the hourlong talk and exercises with the goal of introducing Design Thinking tools and processes as a means for devising elegant solutions for some of the city's thorniest challenges. This presentation provides a useful snapshot of the Design Thinking methodologies, along with a couple of quick exercises to engage a beginner audience.
