Design@Darden – Design Thinking Tools

Darden School at UVA

“When it comes to Design Thinking in practice, there are three inextricable truths. It is better to do things by hand when you’re in discovery mode. Live interaction with stakeholders and users yields the best results. Designers are always seeking to add new tools to their toolkit, especially those that enhance communication and organization.

It is in the spirit of this final truth that we have collected the following list of online tools for inclusion in your toolkit. We have grouped each set by the process enabled or enhanced.

If you encounter a link that is no longer working, please let us know.”
