Get Out Of Creative Ruts With The Fun ‘Designercise’ Game
By Yap Yen, 11 Sep 2015
Based on a combination of cognitive sciences and design thinking techniques, ‘Designercise’ will help you get out of your brain ruts.
‘Designercise’ has three warm up activities and 20 quick game exercises that takes 10 to 15 minutes each. They are designed to “break down and expose cognitive biases” and allow people to get past their mental blocks.
According to its creator, designer and sociologist Leyla Acaroglu, the chosen activities help “engage players to positively disrupt their ordinary thinking patterns and uncover their hidden creative genius”.
For example, a game titled ‘Functional Fixations’ was inspired by the cognitive bias that makes our mind see only the base function of any everyday product. The game lets players come up with creative, wacky solutions using everyday items.
