Description

Collection of publicly available free tools and methods in the Internet for Design Thinking.

Reading Time: 6 minutes Design thinking started as a human-centric framework for problem solving, focusing not on single objects but on systems instead: the single object and it's context of use as well the user. In this sense design is more than look-n-feel. Steve Jobs phrased it in his own extreme consequence: "Design is how it works.". This attitude leads to Design Thinking as modern form of product design.

The list collects internet portals (Portal) and individual web sites on Design Thinking methods and tools.
