  • The Perfect Workspace

    The evaluation process may lead to further moves in the design. In the coevolution framework, designers alternate between its three titular activities. Sensemaking includes both framing and evaluating moves. Implementation is the process of constructing the design object. Coevolution is « the process where the design agent simultaneously refines its mental picture of the design object […]

  • The Best Tools of the Year

    In the reflection in action paradigm, designers alternate between framing, making moves, and evaluating moves. Framing refers to conceptualizing the problem, i.e., defining goals and objectives. A « move » is a tentative design decision. The evaluation process may lead to further moves in the design. In the sensemaking–coevolution–implementation framework, designers alternate between its three titular activities. […]

  • Gradient is the New Black

    The boundaries between art and design are blurred, largely due to a range of applications. Applied arts can include industrial design, graphic design, fashion design, and the decorative arts which traditionally includes craft objects.  In graphic arts (2D image making that ranges from photography to illustration), the distinction is often made between fine art […]

    The rational model is based on a rationalist philosophy According to the rationalist philosophy, design is informed by research and knowledge in a predictable and controlled manner. The action-centric perspective is a label given to a collection of interrelated concepts, which are antithetical to the rational model. It posits that:In the reflection-in-action paradigm, designers alternate […]

  • Stay Hungry Stay Foolish

    The design approach is a general philosophy that includes guides for specific methods. Some are to guide the overall goal of the design. Other approaches are to guide the tendencies of the designer.  The concept of the design cycle is understood as a circular time structure, philosophy of design is the study of definitions […]
