While it was a challenge to start with prototypes, to help distill the mind map and the many layers of the design statement, making these tiny but many prototypes helped gain clarity for next steps. On hindsight, I realized that the challenge in making was essential because the multi-layered design statement and goals itself and therefore, the challenge is to iteratively reach a cohesive product that can then be tested with intended users, sticking to the constraints and circling back on the product goals and criteria.

Small, tiny, simple bits, one at a time, is the way to go.
