Our next Book Club will look at Design Research: Methods and Perspectives, edited by Brenda Laurel.
The goal of the book is to introduce designers to the many research tools that can be used to inform design as well as to ideas about how and when to deploy them effectively.
It uses case studies drawn from areas as diverse as computer games, museum information systems, and movies. Interspersed throughout the book are one-page “demos,” snapshots of the design research experience. The chapter authors come from diverse institutions and enterprises, including Stanford University, MIT, Intel, Maxis, Studio Anybody, Sweden’s HUMlab, and Big Blue Dot; each providing insights on different research techniques and processes.
