Editorial Reviews

Review

"This is a fantastic book, one that reminds us that academic theories and design practice need not be artificially separated, as they are in many universities today. And it is refreshing to see someone really defining the digital design process and its related conceptual tools. Until now, digital design has mostly involved engineers borrowing feebly from the designer's toolbox, and then adding in a bit of human dimension research for good measure. Here, Löwgren and Stolterman have situated digital design in the long and productive history of design process and critical thinking. Congratulations and thanks!"
Jeff Jones, Queensland University of Technology, and Australasian CRC for Interaction Design (ACID)

Designers doubt themselves often. This book speaks to the thoughts and ideas that go through a designers mind throughout a creative process. I found it very valuable on many levels, especially at reaffirming my confidence in making decisions.

This book is very well written and organized.
It works great as a textbook/reference for anyone learning the process of Design, the Thoughtful process of design.
The book has depth and complexity sufficient to stimulate deep thought and engaging discussions, yet is organized with clarity and "thoughtfulness"

Format: Hardcover
This is an excellent book about interaction design. It is philosophical and thoughtful but it also would be useful in practical situations. Highly recommended book from two renowned academics in the field of design and HCI.
