In the last few years, 'Design Thinking' has gained popularity - it is now seen as an exciting new paradigm for dealing with problems in sectors as a far afield as IT, Business, Education and Medicine. Most fields that are eager to adopt design thinking approaches seem to naturally focus their interest on the creative and generative elements of the design professions - after all, this is what design is most commonly known for. In this paper we will seek to enrich this picture by using a case study in design for social wellbeing to describe and discuss the original approach to analysis that is also part and parcel of the designing disciplines.
