Designing and prototyping a new set of simple innovation tools for Creative Entrepreneurs.
In his residency with Kingston University Piers Roberts, founder and director of Designersblock, hoped to research and develop a potential project entitled Riskkit. Based on pattern thinking the project used a series of simple models and tools to describe the common relationships that form in the rapid process of generating and idea and turning it into a deliverable product or service. Riskkit potentially would assist entrepreneurs in describing and analysing the maturing of a given project, and therefore make the correct choices on setting a future course.
With the help from a multidisciplinary team of academics Roberts hoped to develop Riskkit from a early concept into an operational product. The Riskkit project was announced at the Listen, Watch, Share conference organised by Designersblock on the 19th of September 2013.
Unfortunately due to several complications the partnership never developed fully and the project wasn’t realised. A large portion of the residency’s time and funds were invested in developing a draft contract, unfortunately Designersblcok and Kingston University weren’t able to come to a final agreement. Additionally it was difficult to secure time for Roberts to work with students.
