Designing for Humans – Methods of Human Centred Design

Creative work is often believed to be solely based on inspiration as
opposed to methodical processes. Design methods are crucial if we
are to successfully create experiences that are tailored to humans
needs, address multifaceted environments, as well as being
comprehensible to clients and stakeholders. The role of designers
has changed significantly throughout the past decades. The fields of
ethnography and psychology have heavily influenced the way we
conduct our research and test products. Agile processes within
designing and prototyping are inspired by software developers.

Florian Wille will share his take on research, prototyping and testing
methods, using the development of a robotic agent for the elderly as
an example - thus making the case that methodical and creative
processes are not mutually exclusive.
