Trending worldwide is a recognition that design concepts and research methods offer scholarly insights into the world we create that traditional sciences may not address.
How people experience and interact with the made world involving complex systems, visual communication symbols, manufactured products, and environments has rapidly grown into a field of inquiry informing design knowledge and practice. Design-led innovation research drives new design frontiers in health, services, products, and aged care solutions. Research in the field of design is informing approaches to navigate complexity when it is derived from the increase of smart and interactive systems in our lives.
Centre for Design Innovation scholars, University Distinguished Professor Ken Friedman and Research Fellow Heico Wesselius (PhD Candidate), were awarded the prestigious Best Presentation at the international conference "Design - What's Next?", jointly convened by the 20th Chinese Institute of Design; 2nd International Design Study Forum and Conference, May 16, 2015, Yunlin, Taiwan.
