Designing with a child’s mind is useful. As I practically heard, you gasp; it is true. Sir Ken Robinson explains in a discussion, a longitude study was conducted, which means the research group was tested at ages 4-6, then the same children again at 8-10, and lastly, at age 13-15. Divergent thinking is seeing multiple answers to a problem; sounds simple enough. As the research was conducted, they scaled the level of genius of the children based on a scale of how many uses there are for a paper clip. As you would think, average people would come up with 10-15 uses as a genius may come up with over 200 uses. As untamed imagination ran 98% of the children at age 4-6 years old rated at genius. As years passed, the genius rating dropped to approximately 50% and a final drop in the last years testing. See, the kids were not worried about the material or size of the paper clip; they were able to break free from worldly taught ideas. This is a demand for genius design and engineering. We cannot focus on a problem using yesteryear’s thoughts and ideals to truly have innovation. A great design is not throwing different colors and materials together within a budget without solving any new problems. Great design is to serve as functional as appealing to the user. Think like a child when solving issues, design like a child to find innovation.
