Aims and objectives

This unit builds upon user-centred design theory and investigates the interaction between designed objects and user’s emotional experience. The unit aims to introduce students to “emotional design” and the opportunities it offers in the development and performance of a product and how it is perceived and experienced by the end user. It will give thorough consideration to user behaviour and investigate the reasons why certain perceptions are made over designed outcomes.


Students who successfully complete this unit will be able to:
1. Identify design for emotion principles when engaging with existing products
2. Prepare research and analysis of human interaction with products, employing ethnographic techniques
3. Create a design folio exploring a wide range of product solutions
4. Report progress through design documentation and orally in presentations
5. Justify how resulting designs employ emotional design principles and target user
