The study discusses the subject of design and emotion and its importance in the design process. It highlights the close relationships between designers, design outcomes, and users.
- The study aims to provide a meaningful and valuable contribution to the Design and Emotion literature.
- The objective of the study is to investigate the relationship between emotion and the design process.
- The entire study was divided into two sections: empirical study 1 and empirical study.
- Empirical study 1 utilised a questionnaire (quantitative research) to determine the students’ general comprehension of design and emotion concepts and terms.
- Empirical study 2 utilised a focus group with a semi-structured interview (qualitative research) to analyse students’ experiences and understanding of design and emotion and their design process issues.
- The study uses a framework called the 3E model and E-wheel model to explain the relationships between designers, design outcomes, and users. The research methodology used includes interviews with design practitioners, literature reviews, and case studies.
- The study found that emotions play a crucial role in the design process, and designers need to consider the emotional impact of their designs on users. The study also found that emotions can influence design decisions and analytical methods.
The study contributes to the literature on design and emotion, emphasizing the importance of emotional considerations in the design process. The study suggests that designers need to consider the emotional impact of their designs on users and use emotions to guide their design decisions.
