CUT-EDGE SKILLS USED

IMAGINEERING

Imagingering is the  activity of “engineering the imagination”. Utopian and distopic scenarios conceived by extrapolating socio-cultural development trends are translated into virtual reality, for a pre-figuration of their impacts in future life of people.

HUMAN RESEARCH METHODS

At the beginning of our design processes we apply the quantitative and qualitative methodologies of research in the human sciences. This makes it possible to base the project on a solid statistical-interpretative basis and guarantee validity for the subsequent design phases.

FOCUS GROUP

We organize Focus Groups on statistically selected targets to test the product concepts before they are put on the market. Through a phase of prototyping and visual rendering we submit ideas to select the best stylistic and functional aspects, as well as giving indications on the effectiveness of the expected prices.

USER’S ANALYSIS

The User’s Analysis allows us to understand the needs of the users and provide the requirements for the design of objects that facilitate the user’s experience.
