Concept and Development of a Design CanvasThe design process is commonly represented in flow chart or graphical form as a linear,waterfall, spiral, or other structured process. In practice, a successful design is often the result offollowing an underlying design process but also with a vast number of undocumented loops andrevisions which go far beyond the structure of the basic process.The concept of a design canvas is proposed that represents the design process as a collection ofinterrelated themes and activities in a poster format that can be explored both sequentially andsimultaneously. In addition, the design canvas is ideally suited to rapid exploration of ideas andconcepts in a team setting. The design canvas is an extension of the recently presented businessmodel canvas. The structure and elements of the design canvas are detailed and related totraditional models of design and characteristics of successful design. The utility of the designcanvas is explored in the context of sample senior design and corporate sponsored developmentprojects. It is envisioned to continue the refinement of the design canvas structure and elementsand to conduct further assessment surveys.
