When I reflect on the idea of Design thinking, the image of a renaissance man pops into mind. An inventor of sorts but not one that hides in his shed creating weird potions and odd useless gadgets but rather a collaborator. Design thinking is the creation of new ideas and strategies based on the needs of a culture or people and it is done so with a team of experts and team members looking at multiple facets of a situation. It is a process for problem-solving: define an issue, research the issue, ideate or brainstorm solutions, prototype, choose, implement, and learn what could possibly be improved. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Design_thinking). I am not sure this would be the best example, but I do believe Design thinking could be connected to scientific media in the work that Travis Vermilye provided for the conjoined twins Mohamed and Ahmed Ibrahim. The defined issue was trying to find a way to separate these twin boys safely under surgery, much research was done by doctors, scientists, artists to determine whether or not the boys could be safely separated, brainstorming solutions included the work of Travis’ models to assist doctors to get the best possible view and route for a surgical procedure. His models and visuals also gave doctors a chance to practice possible ways to approach surgery without having to place more physical burdens on the twins before hand. Mr. Vermilye’s work was an integral part of a team effort to improve the lives of these children and possibly others in the future. As seen in this example, Design thinking is a team effort.
