Transformator’s Design Research Guide

I’ve just seen the beginnings of a great design research guide put together by Swedish strategic design bureau Transformator.

Covering different research processes and methods, it breaks design research down into language (sometimes quaintly Swedified) that mere mortal designers can understand and make use of. If you haven’t thought about doing some hard-core research work since your god-forsaken design research classes at uni. then the guide will help you ask ‘why’?, ‘where?’, ‘when?’, ‘how?’ and, most importantly ‘what if…?’ in a structured, useful way.

In a state of continuous development, it’s well worth a browse and a bookmark.
