What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"This is a fantastic book, one that reminds us that academic theories and design practice need not be artificially separated, as they are in many universities today. And it is refreshing to see someone *really* defining the digital design process and its related conceptual tools. Until now, digital design has mostly involved engineers borrowing feebly from the designer's toolbox, and then adding in a bit of human dimension research for good measure. Here, Löwgren and Stolterman have situated digital design in the long and productive history of design process and critical thinking. Congratulations and thanks!"—Jeff Jones, Queensland University of Technology, and Australasian CRC for Interaction Design (ACID)
