This is the last personal assignment of project communities. It is time to summaries the things we learned so far from the views of design principles. The principles I learned personally are: good team building, doing research, keep in touch with your client and proper interviews, find the exact problem and find a way to solve it.
Good team building：
This is what we learned in the first week and it proved to be the most important thing. Every one in the team must function as part of the team or they cannot function at all, and the team works cannot be finished. Individuels should play a role in the team and finish their own part of work in time. Also a good team management is important, how to coordinating among team mates is a science.
Before design process starts, doing research is essential. Search everything, every detail is the spirit. The company or NGO, in which areas they are doing business, what are those area’s conditions, what are the companies strategies, and what are their online branding.
Before we start to give suggestions to unicef, we did research of them: english page, chinese page, which areas they are helping and what are theirs’ missing parts. After this, we come out with the idea “camera plan”.
Contact the client:
During this term we have been contacting unicef, although this is not my job so I cannot describe this properly but I do know we have been making efforts. And in the end we will upload the video we made on youtube so they can see it.
Find the exact problem and find a way to solve it:
I believe I don’t need to describe our camera plan anymore, this is a perfect example of “find the exact problem and find a way to solve it”. The african kid’s problems we know are come form social medias but not form the kids. So we found a way to be aware of it from the kids.
