DESIGN RESEARCH — 2018
For this 12 week internship, I worked as a Design Researcher for the Healthcare Business Group in the 3M Design Studio.
Below you can read a general summary of my experience. Please feel free to reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to learn more about my process.
I supported the Industrial Design team and worked on existing projects within the healthcare field. I conducted primary and secondary research including interviews, stimuli creation (e.g. card sorts, co-create activities), workshop design and facilitation, trend research, synthesis, and designing insight frameworks and presentations. I had the opportunity to do research in other cities for my projects and traveled to Denver and Seattle to perform stakeholder interviews, procedure observations, and office tours.
In addition, I worked on an intern-led project, where I took on a leadership role as project leader, in addition to designing the research plan and performing research including interviews, workshop design and facilitation, synthesis, and designing insight presentations.
