Many Models of Design

Eileen used data from her previous concurrent capture and created her postcard based on the diverge-converge model of design (see Dubberly). This model fits well with how she usually sees design; she finds several decisions she has to make (diverge) and then has to make all these choices and narrow things down (converge). The model is divided into labeled sections corresponding to Eileen’s design process. Different colored beads translate to different patterns of emotions happening in the diverge and converge stages. She notes that a constraint she faced was having to find a model that fit the emotion code and data she captured. See the back of the postcard for the key and other details!
