People research for experience design

  1. 1. People research forexperience designGenerating great stories – new product development
  2. 2. Preface This paper is based on Philips Design’s ‘Research through Design’ program, intended to develop business options with high potential value and in a timely manner. The paper outlines an approach to assessing and evaluating innovative experience solutions – presented as tangible experience demonstrators – that are being developed to have people create their own relevant and meaningful experiences. This approach to Experience Assessment builds – in five steps – on the fundamentals of people’s experiences. Such experiences are both dynamic (evolving over time); personal (an integral part of each individual’s experience); and memorable (memory forms a frame of reference for new experiences as well as a long term ‘data-source’ of past experiences). As an example of how this approach can be applied, we present one of our recently conducted research projects, intended to help with the development of new innovative solutions for home entertainment. We show how the approach supports both the design of personalized and meaningful solutions for people, yet remains quick and cost-efficient.

A memory Experience in time contains previous personal experiences as affected expectation well as the interpretation of it from a shared Individual memory cultural reference (Cass and Gridley, 004, page impression discovery use/do and cultural reference 7).

Creating a personalized space Building the context of personal meaning into our experience­assessment site is a serious challenge. Ideally we place the demonstrators in actual homes, but they are often not robust enough to be placed in such ‘real life’ situations and they also required regular back­stage support and technical maintenance.
