Program description

Awarded by: The University of Edinburgh

Our programme centres on the exploration of problem spaces, understanding that much of what product designers do is redefine and reinterpret products and their contexts, enabling people to lead engaged, productive and meaningful lives.

Product design is a broad discipline, which we understand through an ethnomethodological lens. At the heart of our programme are people; particularly those who currently struggle with existing objects in identified circumstances. We embrace a variety of approaches to people-centred design practice including participatory action research; affective design; design for disruption and inclusive design. The core of our approach is to speculate and build preferred futures, based on design-led evidence constructed through observation and engagement with others. Our aim is to understand the agency of objects and configure intended impacts on communities of people moving through and across various services and systems.

You will join a vibrant, international community of creative practitioners and researchers. We are involved in a variety of research interests relevant to design production, maintaining partnerships in allied disciplines such as engineering, informatics, anthropology, sociology, health and business.
