Brown M, Tsai A, Bauley S, Koppe T, Lawson G, Martin J, Coughlan T, Elliot M, Green ST, Arunachalam Uet al., 2014, Using Cultural Probes to Inform the Design of Assistive Technologies, Publisher: Springer, Pages: 35-46, ISBN: 978-3-319-07233-3

This paper discusses the practical implications of applying cultural probes to drive the design of assistive technologies. Specifically we describe a study in which a probe was deployed with home-based carers of people with dementia in order to capture critical data and gain insights of integrating the technologies into this sensitive and socially complex design space. To represent and utilise the insights gained from the cultural probes, we created narratives based on the probe data to enhance the design of assistive technologies.

Green ST, Young M, Boult J, 2012, Mapping Design Process and Radar Analysis of Design Activities, Design Education for Future Wellbeing - Proceedings of the 14th Engineering and Product Design Education Conference, Editors: Buck, Frateur, Ion, McMahon, Baelus, De Grande, Verwulgen, Publisher: Institution of Engineering Designers, Pages: 103-108, ISBN: 978-1-904670-36-0

There is considerable interest in quantifying the impact of professional design activity: At a policy level governments and professional bodies require objective measures of value added to national economies. At firm level there are a range of benefits derived from understanding of value-added to individual businesses or product development activities. However, despite various initiatives, such as national surveys and competitions, there is limited effective communication and more detailed understanding of how design activity creates impact. Building on over 40 years of research into design process, the reported study proposes a rationalised design-space and process model for creating design process maps and radar charts as a basis for unified exploration of a range of factors which affect the outcomes, and therefore impact, of design activity. These methods: Design process maps and HEET radar charts, are applied in various longitudinal studies of design pedagogy. The results highlight differences between design theory and practice together with deficiencies in design process and project orientation within the sampled projects. The overall outcomes inform ongoing development of design evaluation techniques and the communication of design impact.

Green ST, 2009, London Design Map: Design Schools, Creating a Better World - Proceedings of the 11th Engineering and Product Design Education Conference, Editors: Clarke, McMahon, Ion, Hogarth, Publisher: Institution of Engineering Designers, Pages: 55-60

Design is widely recognised as an important component of the creative industries (design based businesses), and as part of business innovation (an ingredient within successful business), both of which are crucial to the London economy. London and the UK’s design colleges and students are globally recognised for their heritage and creative output. The London Design Map is an initiative commissioned by the London Development Agency (LDA) to promote the design capability of the region’s higher educational establishments (HEIs) to business by providing a multifaceted picture of the factors that make up the qualities and capability of design Higher Education (design HE) in the region. This paper describes phase 1 of the project. Analysis is derived from the collected map data which provides an overview of challenges facing businesses and Design HEIs wishing to collaborate, together with insights into the trends in the re-definition of design disciplines. The Design Map includes a new typology for classifying design disciplines and factors influencing business collaboration within design HE.

Dong H, Green S, Thomas N, 2007, Redesigning earplugs: Issues relating to desirability and universal access, Lecture Notes in Computer Science (including subseries Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence and Lecture Notes in Bioinformatics), Vol: 4554 LNCS, Pages: 137-146, ISSN: 0302-9743

Young people growing up with increasing social noises face the risk of hearing damage because of their long term exposure to loud music. Few hearing protection products on the market were designed for this young market. The challenge was to design earplugs that appeal to 18-30 year olds with a focus on desirability. Using personas and scenarios as tools, design students at Brunel University developed a range of creative concepts for aesthetically pleasing earplugs. The project illustrates that by focusing on desirability and key issues of universal access (i.e. diversity of users, tasks and contexts), a medical type of product could become as popular as fashion accessories, thus appealing to the mass market. © Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2007.


Green ST, 2007, Westfocus Designplus: Learnings from a major cross disciplinary design, industry and academic network, Shaping the Future, 9th International Conference on Engineering & Product Design Education, Editors: Bohemia, Hilton, McMahon, Clarke, Pages: 355-360

Westfocus Designplus is part of a multimillion-pound Higher Education Innovation Fund initiative that consists of a consortium of Universities in West London with the overall aims of knowledge transfer and industry partnership [1]. Halfway through a four year programme, Designplus represents design interests and develops opportunities within its specific industrial and academic audiences. Two case studies are presented together with an overview of the evolving context of design networks and collaborative design practice from the perspective of Designplus’s work. The first case study is a practical collaborative design project between a medical equipment design and development company and Brunel University. This demonstrates interesting aspects of emerging practice in approaches to Intellectual Property (IP) and consultancy business models, user-centred design issues in health-care design and collaborative practice between multiple organisations. The second case study concerns establishing a significant new forum for exploring collaborative opportunities in the field of smart materials and wearable technology. These studies allow an evaluation of the broader strategic challenges and opportunities for design orientated industry–academia networks and projects. The findings relate to applying principles of brand management to strategic development planning within this field.
