Designing for imaginary friends: information architecture, personas and the politics of user-centered design

Adrienne L. Massanari
2010 New Media & Society  
To better understand and solidify the importance of the user within the technological artifact, these designers often create 'personas' -prototypical users with names, faces, interests and preferences.  ...  This article considers the problematic relationship between new media designers and users in current texts written about user-centered design (UCD) techniques.  ...  Cooper argues that the strength of using personas, in conjunction with other UCD practices, is their ability to sensitize and focus design and development processes on appropriate functional requirements  ...

Design Anthropology as Social Design Process

Siobhan Gregory
2018 Journal of Business Anthropology  
Residents of these neighborhoods are increasingly asked to engage in stakeholder meetings and design charrettes that promise greater inclusion and "a voice" in the process.  ...  The author argues that design anthropology can offer a deeper, more grounded, and more equitable approach to design and design research processes in contexts of "urban renewal."  ...  It can do this by resisting the spatiotemporal factors that reinforce conditions of inequality in design and the design process. Social design may move from social impact to social transformation.  ...

Assembling Fragments into Continuous Design: On Participatory Design with Old People [chapter]

Suhas Govind Joshi, Tone Bratteteig
2015 Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing  
We use the design of a radio to illustrate how the old users participated in the co-construction.  ...  We discuss how we organized and carried out the PD process so that they could participate in the mutual learning and co-construction activities on their own terms.  ...  In co-construction processes both users and designers participate in creating choices or design ideas to choose from, they work together on making the move by means of various design and prototyping techniques  ...
