The first TOM Fellowship workshop, led by Veronica Alfaro, focused on human centered design. Fellows nominated “Need-Knowers” and co-created low fidelity prototypes that would address challenges working in the kitchen, all while interacting virtually!
Human-Centered Design engages the user in every step of the design process, with the goal to achieve a better result that takes into account all aspects of the user’s well-being.
In TOM “language”, we call the users “Need-Knowers” because they have a lot of knowledge about the need or challenge they, or someone close to them, are experiencing.
