Design Research

The methods, tools, and theoretical underpinnings we have effect how and what we design. The aim of this work is to better understand design as it is currently practiced in different domains and to develop strategies and new modes of engaging both designers and consumers in thinking about design not just as a means of product development, but as a discursive process to explore and develop responses to real-world conditions.
