We started the project by brainstorming around the brief in various directions. Firstly, we looked at the cause, effects and possible interventions in the system to design for a target group in order to have a greater mental being. Some interesting viewpoints emerged during the brainstorming session, all of us were quarantined in different locations, hence, shared our own stories and worries about the lockdown. Brainstroming on miro board is as follows:

While discussing the possible intervention in the system, we felt it was important to focus on a target group in order to be more specific about our research.
