Design Society Exchange

Coming Soon...


What is the Design Society Exchange?

Something exciting is in development that will be exclusive to Design Society Members. The Design Society Exchange will provide a place to disseminate Design methods and case studies on Design for all Design Society members to contribute and share.

Design methods are being curated to provide a structure to the fuzzy, open-ended, human-centred design process. We are developing a comprehensive collection of methods that are organized to help you navigate the ambiguous nature of design. Our methods will be actionable, with best practices, instructions for use, resources, and more to help you seamlessly embed design thinking into your work.

As we develop contextual examples of design methods in practice, we aim to support designers in addressing complex challenges through a human-centred design process. Our ongoing efforts to expand our collection of case studies will inspire and empower the design community to creatively embed methods in practice.


A Bit of History

The Design Exchange was initially a joint project led by UC Berkeley and M.I.T., working with the international community of design academics and practitioners.

The knowledge was built through a series of workshops with Autodesk, Frog, Goto Media, DesignMap, and IDEO. This work was initially partially supported by NSF grant CMMI-1334361.

The Design Society adopted the library of methods and case studies in June 2021 for prosperity.
