A design charrette is a short, collaborative meeting during which members of a team quickly collaborate and sketch designs to explore and share a broad diversity of design ideas.

  • Designers and non-designers—including project stakeholders, engineers, and users—can participate.
  • Participants rapidly generate ideas and rotate through small groups to bring forward the best ideas and move toward superior design concepts.
  • This can be used to explore ideas for large-scale design challenges or generate possibilities regarding a very specific interface.
  • A moderator should communicate that each round of designs builds off the preferred components identified in the prior cycle.
  • The sessions should be low-tech, using basic tools, paper templates, pencils, erasers, and color markers.
  • Clarity can be achieved through the active comparison and contrast of many ideas.
