THE CHARACTERISTICS OF SUCCESSFUL MEANING CONSTRUCTION IN DESIGN TEAMS

Research output: Contribution to book/anthology/report/conference proceedingArticle in proceedingResearchpeer-review

Abstract

Creation of new meanings of products and services is acknowledged as the key skill of designers today. Still, it is also recognised as a difficult competence to acquire and moreover, there is very little guidance for novice designers or non-designers on how to practice this creation of new products meanings. In this study, we explore the meaning construction process in four novice design teams. The study reveals a remarkable difference between high-grade and low-grade students related both to their approach to a design problem as well as their prioritisation of aspects in the design process.
