Applied information design: Dog walkers

I am amazed of the little signs of/for dog walkers that can be found all around UK. In Argentina even though Dog Walking Business are growing quite fast we do not have any signs like the ones I have found

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

A bigger picture of information design

Following up recent discussions about what information design is and how it can be defined, I decided to write a little contribution trying to tackle information design from: its definition (history, objective, boundaries?), its theory (education = foundation levels, research?)

Understanding-centred design process

The Outcome-centred design process has its emphasis in the development of a design outcome. Currently designers are increasing the amount of time and money invested in research and analysis to solve design problems, as can be seen in new born

Organising Flight Information

Adopt a design method!

I have briefly mentioned the importance of design methods for design practice and the current lack of design methodologists in a previous post. Now, I will go further explaining why design methods are essential for the design discipline more than

Types and approaches of (Design) research

Now the term practice-led has become a common term for me, but not before I started my PhD research I realised that there were different types of art and design research. Up to that time, I thought that all investigations
