Working Backwards from MagicEvan Travers
Put simply: working backwards from magic is an approach to creative problems by using the suspension of belief and any limiting factors to unlock new value.
I've been a big fan of this thinking since Jordan introduced me to the phrase. In a product/UX world dominated by aggressive and often predatory data-driven design it is a breath of fresh air.
The UX Vision exercise that Jared Spool promotes is something close to this method. In particular the "despicable design" exercise frees minds imprisoned by the cult of "it's how we've always done it."
In so many ways, this is the role of good sci-fi… and the line blurs often.
If anyone asks… I heard it from Jordan Moore first.
