Abstract

This paper presents a detailed research study that explores how a design thinking inspired co-design approach was applied to creating and evaluating design artifacts of an intended system. A prototype system so called Art Lab was created for the use of an art community for online engagement and collaborative decision-making. The prototype system was designed based on selective user community ideas picked up using an integrated idea generation and prototyping process. The results of this study suggest that the integrated ideation governance process and an active end-user involvement in idea generation and prototyping deliver effective human-centered, and user agreed design solutions. The significance of the paper is that it presents a well-detailed Ideation Governance process and a prototyping approach designated as the Idea Lab process for effective idea generation, idea selection, and prototyping.
