Book Launch: "Enriching"



A new book “Enriching” jointly published by the School of Design (SD) and the Design & Emotion Society in the Netherlands is now available at SD Gallery (AG101, Core A, PolyU) and Basheer Design Bookshop in Wanchai and will also be available at PageOne bookstore in Hong Kong later this month.

"Enriching" documents the process and outcomes of the International Design & Emotion Workshop held both at SD in Hong Kong and Delft University in the Netherlands in June 2008. Participants to the workshop included both professional designers and design students from the Netherlands and Hong Kong. The workshop aimed to introduce participants to the theories of designing with an emotion-based approach, using a live project of re-designing the airport experience. The theory covered, process and methodology used, and project outcomes were nicely compiled in this handy small book.

The book aims to share its methods and to inspire all those who might be interested in using this new approach to designing human-centered experiences and services.

"Enriching" is now available at Basheer Design Bookshop in Wanchai and will also be available at PageOne bookstore later this month, at the price of HK$180.

Hope you will find the book inspiring and, enriching.
