Item Description...

How do designers think?

The concept that designers have and use 'designerly' ways of knowing and thinking emerged in the late 1970s alongside new approaches in design education, and was first clearly articulated by Professor Nigel Cross, one of the most internationally respected design researchers.

"Designerly Ways of Knowing" is a revised and edited collection of key lectures and publications by Professor Nigel Cross on the nature of design activity and expertise, and the evidence for design cognition as a particular and essential aspect of human intelligence. It explores the following topics:

    • the nature and nurture of design ability
    • creative cognition in design
    • the natural intelligence of design
    • design discipline versus design science
    • expertise in design.

As a timeline of scholarship and research, and a resource for understanding how designers think and work, this book will interest researchers, teachers and students of industrial and product design, design practitioners and managers.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
How to explain the inner workings of the designing mind...  Jun 2, 2008
Cross's book presents an updated collection of essays analyzing design behavior. Each essay furthers the argument for the value of design with insight into the inner workings of the design process. This is done by relating government research, comparisons of designers at the same task, and interviews with world class designers. The book elevates design thinking to an intrinsic cultural value and a basic human intelligence which should be taught to everyone alongside numeracy and literacy. Most importantly, Cross provides a challenge and a framework to advance design education and the discipline of design through the study of design thought, design activity, and the cultural artifacts of design.
