2020: Special Issue: Empathy in Design

The design thinking model teaches that empathy is the starting point in design, but there are many ways of establishing empathy, and many ways in which empathy influences subsequent steps in designing a product.

These submissions use methodologies that are related to the design process, such as ethnography, storytelling, observational research and case studies. As well as, designed objects that are documented photographically or through video, and in writing.
