The double diamond revamped aims to provide designers with a tool and is based on these ideas.
According to Don Norman, the human centred design process start with:
Various companies and organisations came up with models to provide structure to the process of human centred design (or design thinking.)
When you cook a chilli con carne for the first time, you might start off with a recipe that you like. But once you've burned your tongue a few times, you tweak the original recipe to your own needs and taste.
That's why the Double Diamond process, initially released by the British Design Council, is used. This framework has good structure, clarity and dynamics.
The Double Diamond is a structured design approach to tackle challenges in four stages:
The phases are either diverging (open up as much as possible) or converging (condensing or narrowing your ideas).
This should result in a pile of unstructured research findings.
To make sense of your findings, you want to synthesise your research by applying the following steps:
This should result in a revamped brief that clarifies or details the initial brief or contradicts it.
As you have deduced the actual question to solve or challenge, you start ideating.
You ought to end up with a small number of ideas to prototype and test to find the best solution.
Once you have a potential solution (or set of ideas), you want to evaluate the final one and the way it needs to be implemented. An agile approach can be used consisting of three steps:
Aim for minimum viable products so that you can see if it solves the initial problem. Thereafter, you should be able to go out with your final solution or product.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
