Designing Visual Tools to Facilitate Human-Centered Design

Research output: Contribution to conferencePosterScientificpeer-review


Human-Centred Design (HCD) relies on the use of many methods (e.g. interviews, observations) originating from other disciplines such as social sciences (e.g. ethnography). Such methods often rely on the use of visual tools (e.g. photographs and illustrations) to better facilitate the involvement of the participants in the design process. Most HCD practitioners, however, do not have the necessary visual design skills, and as such, need to work with visual communication designers to co-create visual tools to support their design projects. In this poster, we present a multidisciplinary approach to guide the process of co-creating such visual tools.
