Need to supercharge your concept design on a budget? – Co-design your concepts with your customers

Asking your customers what they want is notoriously flawed. Conducting research and gathering evidence for what they want is ideal, but time consuming and expensive. You probably have ideas or concepts that you think might work, but which ones do you invest in further without the evidence of what they need from in depth research to help you decide? What if you could get your customers to help you come up with your next design concepts? Not just by asking them to take part in research, but by actually getting them involved directly with your creative design process. Tricky, yes. Impossible, definitely not. Using a case study this talk will explore how you can use co-creation to engage with your customers in a different way.
