Conversation Starters – Design Kit –

Conversation Starters put a bunch of ideas in front of users to spark their reactions. The ideas you generate for your Conversation Starters are totally sacrificial, so if they don’t work, drop them and move on. The goal here is to encourage creativity and outside-the-box thinking from the people you’re designing for. This resource page also shows what the time needed for this activity, the level of difficulty, the materials needed and participants required.

We're thinking of launching a mission-based job board for design gigs in the public/social sector, as well as regular updates to the directory. Sign up to be notified when we do!
