Metaphor Brainstorming: Using Metaphors to Generate Design Ideas,
Requirements, and Product Personality Workshop with Chauncey Wilson

Metaphor brainstorming is a powerful ideation and conceptual design
technique for generating underlying metaphors, requirements, features, and
attributes for new and existing products. Metaphor brainstorming begins with
traditional brainstorming of high-level metaphors. These metaphors are then
deconstructed into their components and attributes. Finally, the items from
the deconstruction are mapped to potential features, requirements, or
attributes of the new product.

Metaphor brainstorming is most useful during the early stages of design for
developing conceptual models, generating requirements, and early user
interface design where you are specifying the relationship between features
and specific user interface metaphors.

In this workshop, Chauncey Wilson will:

1. Describe the metaphor brainstorming process;

2. Explain how take the output and convert that into requirements and
design concepts;
