A Designer’s Mindsets, a sketchnote on the design process

A Designers Mindsets - design process sketchnote by Margaret Hagan
Here is a visual I made for some of the recent workshops I’ve been running on Legal Design. As I present the concept of ‘design’ to a roomful of non-designers, I’m finding it useful to focus on two streams of doing design work: mindsets to adopt, and process steps to follow.

This image is a quick overview of the various mindsets that I try to evoke during my workshops, and hopefully am developing for myself in my own design projects. During the workshops, we run through exercises that focus on one or two of these mindsets in particular. Each of them can almost be a pair of lenses, for the designer to wear at certain moments of the process.
