The Use2Use Design Toolkit: Tools for User-centered Circular Design


This template offers a digital version of the Use2Use Design Toolkit that includes five user-centered circular design tools. The toolkit can help you design products and services that make circular consumption preferable to people. The template includes an introduction to the toolkit, instructions, and worksheets.

How to use this template:

  • Use the template to work with one or more of the Use2Use design tools in early phases of your design process.

  • You can use the tools to boost design work either through solitary or collaborative sessions. When using it with your team or your clients it is usually beneficial to invite a mix of competencies to take part in the sessions, e.g. designers, business strategists, user researchers, technical specialists, and product and service managers.

  • You can also use the tools together with future user's of the products and services you are developing to mediate user studies or facilitate co-design sessions.

  • For collaborative sessions we recommend that you appoint a facilitator that prepares and moderates the sessions.

Pro-tip: This is a generic template designed to fit a variety of projects. Feel free to adapt the template to your needs; you can work directly on this board or copy a selection of instructions and worksheets to other project boards.

The Use2Use Design Toolkit will help you to:

  • Embrace a Use2Use mindset and design products and services fit for circular consumption.

  • Explore user needs related to people ́s everyday consumption processes and the activities, decisions and experiences they entail.

  • Gain insight into consumption-related design challenges, and ideate and evaluate design concepts.
