10 factors to information design problem-solving

(Information) designers approach problems and go through the problem-solving process using diverse methods, but eventually they all arrive to (different degrees of successful) solutions. Some designers seem to go through the conceptual design process with no apparent method, others take

Terminologies can be confusing

Sometimes, terminologies can obscure rather than shed light. Cross-disciplinary projects are the perfect scenario to illustrate this point as to achieve common understanding among all parties involved could be a challenge. Ambiguous understanding is likely to happen when we see

A closer view to creative thinking

How designers think or how the creative thinking and problem-solving processes work have been subjects of several studies (Goldschmidt, 1990; Cross et al., 1996; among others) involving a wide range of disciplines and fields from cognition, psychology, visual thinking to

From print to digital design

Two years ago, Mark Porter’s talk at CIDAG conference added some interesting insights to the on going print-digital media debate. In particular, Porter (2010) pointed out four key technological milestones in the communication media industry: print, Internet, mobile and tablet

Some information design projects often have a deep level of complexity and deal with high amounts of information. The creation of one or more documents to aid (information) designers in the process before they begin with prototype design is highly

(End)Users within the Design Process

The terms ‘User’ and ‘End-user’ can be easily used with the inappropriate meaning. In Design we often talk about: the users of the design outcomes, or who are the users of…?, as referring to the audience of a particular design

Understanding is everything

There are tonnes of problems caused by misunderstandings from being lost in the street, arriving to inefficient solutions, to having communication problems. Understanding seems to be the most important stage of a (design) process, but what does understanding mean? How
