Ideating in Skills


The above picture shows part of the Ideating in Skills set, that was created during a two week project at the Technical University of Eindhoven. The aim of this set was to stimulate designers during their ideation process by providing them with objects that could be applied to the situation they are exploring. The set was created in a process that incorporated a lot of rapid prototyping, user explorations and material analysis. The set will be used in further research into Designing in Skills within the department of Designing Quality in Interaction at the TU/e.

A paper about the Ideating in Skills set was published at TEI’16:
