A universally accepted model of the design and innovation process, the double diamond is a visual process model that aids our understanding of the UX design process. Think of this model as a road map—from the problem to the solution and covering everything in between.

It’s almost as though the model asks us to think beyond problem-solving because that makes finding the solution relatively more straightforward. However, morphing into being a problem-finder is the more challenging, more elusive task.
You may already be applying the double diamond model to navigate hurdles in your everyday life without realizing it. Before we get to that, let’s consider how the model took shape and came to be. Read More
