Bisociating diversities for socially responsive design

Central St. Martins, London 11 September 2012.

To kick start the Design & Emotion conference we did a three-­hour workshop introducing a method called ‘bisociating diversities’ that aims to provide a focused framework for ideation and to tease out fresh and possibly surprising new concepts. This playful design method has evolved out of our ongoing research into ‘metadesign’ (Jones and Lundebye, 2012). We had participants from industry and academia co-design some interesting concepts for socially responsive design, such as “happifying communities-on-the-go.”
