Emotion In Design

Show Notes

In his 2003 book, Emotional Design, the well-known American academic, Don Norman, came up with a theory to capture how and why people react, and emotionally connect, to certain objects and visual experiences. His theory was that true delight and enduring pleasure in something can only be achieved if positive visceral, behavioural and reflective reactions are achieved. In this episode, Jeff and Susie are joined by Brian Woulfe of Designed by Woulfe to explore how this theory can be applied to the design of interior spaces. Is Don Norman’s approach just marketing spin or are there real benefits to be had? And, if so, how can designers ensure their clients respond positively to their designs on all levels? Thanks to our series partner Parkside Architectural Tiles for their support. The Interior Design Business is a Wildwood production.

Design For The Client You Never Meet

More than half of all design projects fall outside of the private residential realm. In the workplace, healthcare, education, hospitality and residential development sectors, interior designers are frequently creating schemes for 'clients' that they never meet. Dean Keyworth, Principal at Armstrong Keyworth and a Past President of the British Institute of Interior Design, is our guest as we explore this important and challenging aspect of design. We look at the pressures facing designers on projects where commercial success, or, indeed, failure often rests on the designer’s ability to accurately predict the needs and aspirations of the imagined end user. We also unearth the tricks of the trade that can be employed to achieve the right design and commercial goals. This episode is recorded in the Clerkenwell showroom of Danish furniture brand, NORR11. ...

The State Of Design Education

In this episode we take a look at the state of design education with expert help and insight from the Principal of the KLC School of Design, Jenny Gibbs, and co-presenter, Susie Rumbold, Head of London-based design practice, Tessuto. We ask if design education is preparing graduates successfully for real-world employment. We also consider other important questions. How is interior design education changing to meet the needs of the construction industry? What are the key skills that interior design practices look for in graduates? And, what can be done to ease that, sometimes, painful transition from education into professional practice? Susie reveals how, even when qualified, the learning process never stops and Jenny takes us right back to the beginning of her career in design education to explain the origins of KLC. This episode is recorded in the offices of KLC. The Interior Design Business is a Wildwood and Alfi Media production. ...
