- interview Ask an established designer about her / his design process
- how-to Ideas for interview questions Whats your role as a designer? Whats your ideal design process? Whats your actual design process?
- how-to Interview for empathy Ask why. Never say usually when asking a question. Encourage stories. Look for inconsistencies. Pay attention to nonverbal cues. Dont be afraid of silence. Dont suggest answers to your questions. Ask questions neutrally. Dont ask binary questions. Only ten words to a question. Only ask one question at a time, one person at a time. Make sure youre prepared to capture. d.school (2010): bootcamp bootleg, http://dschool.stanford.edu/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/BootcampBootleg2010v2SLIM.pdf
