Here are the slides from last night.
The biggest takeaways for me were:
- The idea of lenses is a great way to mentally frame design principles
- There is a strong interest in us curating these principles
- There is still some tinkering on how broad the lenses should be (lumping vs. splitting). The analogy of a camera lens was used by Ann Marcus. Narrow the lens and get the details but lose more of the context. Widen and you get less detail but a broader application.
- That lenses can serve (as patterns do) to inform not just designers but all involved in product design as a common vocabulary and repository for examples.
Let me know what you think.
