Design problems often come as ambiguous statements and information or are discovered through information gathering and design ethnography investigations. Additionally, problems can be structured so as to lead to more varied and creative ideas from which designers can evaluate, synthesize, and select, and eventually develop innovative outcomes.
At C-SED, we investigate how designers explore the real need of a design problem as well as strategies they use to frame it and methodologies they use to define it (e.g. requirement elicitation), ultimately leading to design tools and strategies to support best practices.
