Holistic Design Approach

Most of the time we’re informed with a brief to focus on what to improve within a system, however designing for a dictated form of problem- or sometimes answer does not yield the best result.
A holistic design approach helps us to see the beyond the interface, the parts of an ecosystem working together that are embodied as the features and functions which create the product experience. With the help of this method we find opportunities to expand our questionable area to delve deeper into the core of the problems and motivations.
