Emotional and aesthetic attachment to digital artefacts. Cognition, Technology and Work, https://doi.org/10.1007/s10111-012-0231-x
We report a pair of repertory grid studies that explore the attachment people have for digital and nondigital
In the first study we found no clear distinctions betw...
Is stereotyping inevitable when designing with personas?
Turner, P., & Turner, S. (2011)
Is stereotyping inevitable when designing with personas?. Design Studies, 32, 30-44. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.destud.2010.06.002
User representations are central to user-centred design, personas being one of the more recent developments. However, such descriptions of people risk stereotyping. We review ...
