From problem driven design to solution driven design: supporting interaction designer’s creativity within the ubicomp context
Umeå University, Faculty of Science and Technology, Umeå Institute of Design.
2012 (English)Conference paper, Published paper (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

The activity of interaction design when applied in the ubicomp context faces a number of novel design challenges and requires interaction designers to bring in their creative abilities when bringing an interactive artefact into being. In this paper, I examine if the structure of the prevalent process of interaction design is effective enough in supporting designer’s creative inputs during the process of interaction design within the ubicomp context. To do so, I examine the key activities of design and point out that the problem driven structure of the prevalent process of interaction design is somewhat ineffective in supporting designer’s creative abilities. I then point to another approach to design, namely, the solution driven approach and examine its effectiveness to support designer’s creative inputs. I conclude the paper by providing a brief reflection of a design case where the solution focused approach was applied to being an interactive artefact into being and point to the advantages it appears to offer to support designer’s creative inputs.
