In this project we’ll be looking at people’s particular relationship with a personal item – I have chosen to look at wallets. We’ll be using Design Thinking methods to examine the human aspects of the product and how people relate to it, use it, and feel about it.
To kick things off before starting to investigate directly with people, I’ve done some online research to get an idea of scope and some of the issues to consider.
