Quick background before I dive into my exercise
I was having one of those particularly groggy days, the kind of day where it felt like my brain only wanted to operate in “Saturday mode” but I needed a quick dose of creativity. I came across this cool website that generates design prompts for whiteboard exercises. I decided to forgo the whiteboard and attempt to capture my thought process in writing.
What follows is my unedited “steam of consciousness”. Questions I’d normally ask and steps I‘d take to solve a “unique problem”. It's also a pretty “wacky” design prompt that ended up being fun to think through.
I allowed myself 20 minutes for this “thought exercise” and definitely left some territory uncovered.
