Design Survey for PhD Thesis and Book

Designers and researchers, please, support the following survey below.

Thanks in advance!

My name is Gonzalo Raineri Bernain, and I’m doing a PhD in Design program at the Universidad de Palermo in Buenos Aires, researching Design, Sustainability and Autopoiesis. The purpose of this post is to invite you to please take part in a survey to obtain data from relevant players like you, in various fields of design.

I’m in the process of developing my PhD in Design Thesis, and the question “What is design?” arose.

I could have gone with a pre-established definition, but that would have lead my future steps into distorted and narrowed approaches. Just imagine how important this is to the whole design community.

The results are going to be included in my thesis and published in a recopilatory compendium book.  I’ll send you an e-book copy and if I can a printed one. If your opinions don’t appear in the book, either way I will include you in the book acknowledgments. You can always participate in the survey without being published.

Please help me with 15 minutes of your time, this is crucial for my thesis. You get the opportunity to be published, a free book, and my eternal gratefulness.

Thanks in advance

Mi nombre es Gonzalo Raineri Bernain. Me encuentro realizando un Doctorado en Diseño en la Universidad de Palermo de Buenos Aires. El tema de mi tesis es en torno al Diseño, Sustentabilidad y Autopoiesis. El objetivo deste post es invitarlo(a) a participar en una encuesta para obtener información relevante de expertos(as) como usted, en varias áreas del diseño.

Durante el proceso de desarrollo surgió la pregunta ¿Qué es el diseño?

Podría haber tomado una definición ya existente, pero esto me hubiese guiado hacia un resultado desvirtuado y acotado. Solo imagínese lo importante que es saber esto para la comunidad de diseñadores.

Los resultados van a ser usados en mi tesis y publicados en un libro compendio recopilatorio. Si sus opiniones aparecen en el libro, le enviare una copia digital y si puedo una impresa. Si sus opiniones no aparecen en el libro, su nombre aparecerá en los agradecimientos del libro.

Por favor tómese 15 minutos de su tiempo pues es crucial para mi tesis. Usted obtiene la oportunidad de ser publicado, de un libro gratis y mi eterno agradecimiento.

Mil gracias de antemano.

Reissue of the guide “Human Scale”

In the golden age of American industrial design, Henry Dreyfuss Associates knew that there was more to design than just looking good. Products had to be good, crafted to work with the people who use them.
With this in mind, HDA designers Niels Diffrient and Alvin R. Tilley created Humanscale, including its ingenious data selectors, providing access to over 60,000 human factors data points in one easily referenced, user-friendly “portfolio of information”.
Humanscale has long been out of print. Now we’re bringing it back.
