Crowdsourcing

The headphones you see above are not designed by a classic team of designers. They were designed by an independent crowd that followed our call for submitting their ideas for their ideal pair of headphones.
With a unique process model we wanted to test if crowdsourcing can lead to high quality results in the field of design.

On a simple web platform the ideas were collected, ranked and discussed. The strongest trends were analysed and put together to form a design manifesto which led us to the final design.
