Get agreement and make design decisions quicker
The design studio exercise lets an entire team contribute to a design solution. It’s perfect to run remotely. Using a template in MURAL makes it easy.
Invite your team to an hour-long session. Keep the group small - to about 8 or fewer people. Determine the specific design challenge you’re going to address - the more specific the better.
Post the challenge at the top of the mural for everyone to see.
The process then has three main steps:
- First, discuss the design challenge and address questions. Then have everyone brainstorm ideas on sticky notes for 2-3 minutes in their assigned row. Go around the group and have everyone read out their ideas for a brief discussion.
- Next, have each person select the idea they think is most promising and sketch it. Limit this to about 5-8 minutes. Upload a photo of the sketch to mural. Have everyone describe drawing to the whole group and summarize the key highlights of the idea in the column on the right.
- Finally, consolidate the best ideas in a single design direction. Sketch the final idea and include it the area at the bottom of the template.
