This was the very first project that we did in the ITPD program. We got the task of designing game for an organization called “Secretariat of 2017”. They needed a tool to help them kick off a brainstorm session for their employees, for when they have to come up with ideas for events for the year of 2017 if Sønderborg would become Cultural Capital in EU.
We designed this game based on interviews that we did with three people working in the organization and our perception of what would be useful for to have in mind when you have to plan events for an entire region for a year.
To develop our game concept we arranged two work-shops with the organization, professors and fellow student at the university where they would test the game and give feedback. We used the data to evaluate the board design, rules, etc., and then produced a new version of the concept that would be tested a second time, before making the final version which would be tested at a third final workshop.
Important keywords for the project was:
- A tool for brainstorming
- Participatory Innovation
- Rapid Prototyping
