Representations

tool description

The mind map is a tool for the visual elicitation of our thoughts and their connexions. The visualization begins with a problem or an idea put in the centre of the representation. Then signs, lines, words and drawings are used in order to build a system of thoughts around the starting point.
The hand and the mind work simultaneously.

D-SCHOOL MIND MAP

David Kelley, IDEO

In 2004 David Kelley was establishing a new design school at Stanford with the goal of providing a inter disciplinary program for the development of products, experiences, services and spaces with the design as the core skill. The mind map shows his idea of the educational experience for the “d-school”.
