About the iterative design process

Through posts, pages, and videos, we (Anna Armstrong, Keith Morgan, Stephen ONeil, and Anna Spady) will document our service design process using a variety of design methodologies.  Our formal meetings will cover the steps described below, and meeting notes and video will be included on the meeting pages.  Our personal journal entries, research, and reflections outside of the meetings will be communicated through posts.
