RATIO - Design Studio

My senior thesis at Parsons is a collaborative project with Urvi Raghbeer that aims to answer the question: “Can design thinking solve everyday problems?” One hundred people were interviewed with a simple question: “What is one problem you face in your everyday life?”

Ten problems were chosen based on the frequency or our interest and this became the prompt to design ten simple solutions; we designed four each individually and two collaboratively. A solution was completed each week using a "sprint" methodology and design thinking—an approach that matches user’s needs with what is technologically practical and can create demand.

This resulted in a design studio, Ratio, where we use a unique crowdsourcing method to receive work.
