This new edition has been updated throughout with new examples, and problems broadening the appeal and relevance of the book from engineering design into product design. A new chapter on the User Scenarios Method fills the gap in the current 'symmetrical problem/solution' model of the design process linking 'Overall problem' and 'Overall solution'. It presents a procedure and examples for investigating potential product user wants and needs, including the development of user 'profiles', 'personae' and 'scenarios', and culminating in a clear statement (a design brief) that identifies an opportunity for developing a new product concept. There is also a companion website providing power-point slides of figures for instructors.

Nigel Cross is Emeritus Professor of Design Studies, Open University, UK. He has vast experience as a design teacher and an international reputation as a design researcher through books such as Designerly Ways of Knowing and Analysing Design Activity, and editorship of the leading research journal, Design Studies.
