With this case study I talk about my experience at VISA as an intern and the challenges I faced and strategies I used to tackel them.
I do not show any details about my projects here but feel free to get in touch with me to learn more.
Using the Double Diamond Approach
Double Diamond is a very common framework used by designers. I used this framework in my solo project for a couple of reasons:
I had very limited existing research, therefore the project needed me to expland my research to understand what is already existing and collect research from where I can.
The project had a lot of ambiguity, which led to multiple assumtions. The framework gave me the flexibility to narrowdown with assumptions, and expland with imagination.
With limited time I undertook multiple activities at the same time and the double diamond approach provided structure to get and incorporate feedback for these activities.

Challenges and Strategies
I believe every designer faces challenges, facing them and using strategic activities to shape your project is what helps you grow and move forward. The following diagram depicts challenges I faced and strategies I used to tackle them:
Communication & Involvement
To Wrap Things Up
My internship at Visa helped me grow as a designer, and learn to work with ambiguity.
Providing reasoning became a habit as I design. It helps me create research backed designs.
Self critique became an important part of my design process
