The MVIFI Design Thinking Field Guide

In 2014, a team of MVIFI designers embarked on a design challenge to scale the DEEP methodology into tools for design thinkers to use. The DEEPdt Playbook has been used all over the country, and internationally, in various industries to inspire people-centered problem solving.

After years of using DEEP, we’ve learned SO MUCH about the advantages and obstacles of the DEEP model. As with any design, use of the current version reveals insights and possible revisions. In 2018, the MVIFI design team started to explore a new framework for design thinking that we call The Compass. This new model is explained in the final pages of this Field Guide.

In order to play and experiment with this transition, we’ve removed the DEEP framework from the tools in the Field Guide, so that the various graphic organizers can be used more freely throughout the design thinking process. In essence, the tools are still the same, but they are not boxed in by a particular mode of any design thinking model.
