Abstract [en]

Within ubicomp research literature a novel type of prototype, referred as Design Fiction prototype, has received some attention in recent years. While such prototypes appear to have significant potential to inform ubicomp design how to integrate them into the ubicomp design process is a question that has not recieved adequate attention thus far.

In an attempt to answer the above question a design experiment was carried out at the Umeå Institute of Design where the integration of design fiction prototype into the ubicomp design process was examined in two different ways: one, after establishment of requirements and development of design concepts, following the prevalent ubicomp design process and two, at the very beginning of the design process following the design process prevalent in traditional design disciplines.

In this paper, I briefly discuss the deign experiment carried out and reflect on results. I conclude the paper by pointing out that the problem focused nature of the prevalent ubicomp design process is not conducive to leverage the advantages offered by such prototypes whereas the solution focused design process prevalent within the traditional design disciplines appears to offer better opportunities.

Abstract [en]

Interaction design research acknowledges that two distinct design approaches, namely, the engineering design approach and the creative design approach can be applied to carry out the activity of interaction design. The interaction designer therefore appears to have a choice when it comes to the selection of a design approach when confronted with a design situation. But what should be the basis of this choice? In this paper, considering design as a problem solving process, I compare the structure of the design processes informed by the engineering design approach and the creative design approach. I identify some differences between the design process informed by the engineering design and the creative design approach and note that the awareness of such differences could form the basis for interaction designers to opt for one design approach over the other.

Abstract [en]

In recent years, the concept of design thinking has received significant attention within the research literature originating from several design as well as management fields [1, 5]. However, there does not seem to be any agreement on what exactly design thinking is, nor on how it guides the activity of design. In this paper, we introduce one recently articulated view of design thinking originating from the field of architectural design [4]. We briefly discuss some characteristics of this view of design thinking and how it guides the activity of design and then apply the process of design guided by this view of design thinking to address the design brief provided by DTRS9. We conclude by pointing out that unlike the descriptions of the activity of design provided by design paradigms, the design process informed by architectural view of design thinking consists of both the process of problem decomposition and the process of solution focused process of the solution focused problem formulation which provides a means for designers to get to grips in a more practical way with real design issues.

Abstract [en]

The prevalent design methods and tools being used in Service Design appear to have been informed by the prevalent design traditions within the technology design fields (e.g. HCI and User Experience Design). Such design traditions put users at the centre of the activity of design and aim to cater to their needs, aspirations and desires. But should the user in service design be conceived in the same manner as it has been conceived in technology design fields?

To investigate this question, in this paper, first, I discuss why the notion of user is important for the activity of design. I then discuss how the notion of user has informed the attributes of user artefact interaction within the technology design disciplines over the years. Following this I discuss some of the everyday services to identify attributes of user service interaction. By comparing the user service interaction attributes with the user artefact interaction attributes originating from technology design disciplines, I point out that user service interaction attributes are somewhat different than the user artefact interaction attributes within technology design disciplines. I conclude the paper by arguing for the need of re- conceptualization of the user in service design to assist service designers to design innovative, efficient and effective services.

Abstract [en]

This thesis examines the use of an architectural design model in interaction design and provides a detailed and concrete account of bringing an interactive artefact, the Recipe Station, into being.

The model of architectural design, with its view of the activity of design as envisioning and making incorporates a number of design traditions that allows architects to deal with novel challenges in an effective and efficient manner. It is argued that the prevalent model of architectural design can provide a more coherent and richer framework for the activity of interaction design than is currently the case.

This model of architectural design is illuminated by the author’s reflection on design research carried out in traditional design disciplines as well as his own experience in the professional practice of architecture. The model of architectural design, thus illuminated, is then evaluated by applying it to bring an interactive artefact, the Recipe Station, into being.

This thesis demonstrates that the model of architectural design offers a number of advantages for interaction design activity.

The account of bringing an interactive artefact discussed in this thesis illustrates a process or morphology of the activity of reflective design that can be applied to interaction design (Schön, 1983).

The thesis also illuminates a number of design traditions associated with a architectural design practice, such as, study of design cases, a solution-focused approach to the process of problem formulation, and a ‘design by drawing’ approach, that can offer significant advantages for the activity of interaction design.

This thesis, thus, introduces a way of thinking about the activity of design which is driven by the design skills of the designer and makes contributions to interaction design research.
