Yes, I want the Research Design Connections advantage!
Both designers and their clients are finding it more and more important to base design decisions on rigorous research into how people relate to the manmade and natural worlds. Investments in human resources, materials, real estate, and tooling are rapidly becoming more expensive. Research Design Connections supplies the knowledge resources design professionals need to develop exceptional places and objects, valued by both clients and users. Research Design Connections can show you how to use what scientists have learned about the psychology behind our reactions to design to create places in which people flourish and to craft objects humans cherish. Using insights derived from research to inform design decisions creates a competitive advantage that increases the perceived value of design services.
In addition to our valuable quarterly issues, with your subscription you also gain access to our archive of past articles – over 1,500 useful articles and blog posts on all aspects of research-backed design.
