Description
Summary:The process of design is both contested and little understood. This thesis investigates key elements of design as a process, in order to establish the notion that design is an individually negotiated process of reflexive practice. The design practice of four New Zealand designers is observed in order to examine key elements and methods of the process used by each designer. Specific reference is made in terms of the designers' relationship with their surrounding or remembered environment. Within this work I map my own process as an artefact designer, to contextualise the methodologies employed and to provide broader debate around the interface between the designer, her world and her work.
