We have not yet reached a state of equality in our world. Design and Design research is one way toward that path. As a design researcher, we often work in multidisciplinary teams and immerse ourselves in the lives of our customers, users, and organisations. We play hide and seek with our insights. We learn from real people and empathise with their knowledge and needs. We take our user insights and transform them into real-world applications, services or products that people can use. At the forefront of our thinking as design researchers, we advocate for our user.
