Building on Human-Centered Design: Evolving the Discipline of Design Research

Building on Human-Centered Design: Evolving the Discipline of Design Research


Presented by: 

  • David Weissburg, Director, Design Strategy, Fidelity Labs
  • Mark RogersDirector, Design Strategist, Fidelity Labs


Missed out on Service Design Week 2017? Human-Centered design has emerged as the industry standard for design research. But might human-centered research, by its nature of putting “the user” in the middle, be in danger of serving only part of those in need of support?

In this workshop, David Weissburg introduced the budding concept of Relationship-Centered Design. Through interactive exercises comparing various depths of design research (customers, users, humans, relationships), observe the differing research outcomes achieved dependent on the methods used. attendees walked away with a new, relationship-centered mindset for navigating the fuzzy front end of innovation. 

Take a look at their presentation.
