“Excellent examples of how designers research and understand their end users needs. This well help A2 students who are studying end users requirements during their Unit 4 Product Design coursework research."

Malcolm Cross,
Head of D&T, Peter Symonds School, the largest centre teaching AQA A level Product Design

Designing for the User: Inclusive Design shows very clearly the value of the investigation stage of product development and should help teachers to reinforce the idea that primary investigations and user trials have far more value than collecting images off websites or copying data from books.  The case study of designing a phone onto a banana is a lesson to us all about how to make this a fun and practical stage of the work.
