Design Week 2019 | Problem Framing: Exploring “What Else?”

­There are so many versions of design thinking processes out there, from IDEO to Google Design Sprints. However, many don’t dig deep enough into what Rachel Davis calls step 0: Problem Framing. Problem Framing is about asking ourselves, “What Else?” 

Join us at iNovex’s brand new offices in Columbia for this workshop as a part of Baltimore Design Week 2019. Lunch will be provided, courtesy of our hosts at iNovex Information Systems.

This workshop will touch on: 

  • The importance of looking at problems from different frames
  • Type of frames, framing across time, scale, and from different perspectives, along with examples of framing with various perspectives 
  • Building out perspectives in a group activity to determine the perspective of a specified challenge
  • Prioritization and organization of the frames, followed by the next steps after determining frames.

Rachel here, self-proclaimed brand hacker and communications nerd! I strive to provide a unique twist on traditional branding by mixing in new techniques that use actionable tactics based on design thinking, creative problem solving, and just plain geeky madness. I help companies approach wicked challenges in ways they may never have imagined before.

I believe in building communities, sharing your story, and supporting others in and beyond your field. As the co-founder of the Code for Baltimore brigade in 2016, part of the AIGA Baltimore board before moving to Texas, co-lead of Ladies, Wine, and Design: SATX, and the Community Ambassador of Elevate & Cultivate, I love surrounding myself with others who are just as eager to learn and collaborate as I am. Building opportunities for everyone to come out more energized on the other side and put those creative brains together to make an impact drives me. 

I now live in San Antonio, Texas, with my hubby, two pups, and one cat, but Baltimore has my heart as it was my home up until two years ago!
