Connect the Dots: Sorting into Themes and Patterns

This resource page helps you with synthesis - making sense of your design research. Get sorting with the free downloadable Insights Matrix template.

Name these clusters to reflect that theme. Summarize your theme, but still try and account for all of the smaller ideas that sit within it.
