  • Analysis of footwear development from the design perspective: Reduction in
           solid waste generation

    • Authors: Elisa Guerra Ashton
      Abstract: Environmental quality is an increasingly discussed topic, being a global and urgent issue. Among the environmental problems, it is highlighted in this study the great generation of solid waste, especially associated with the footwear production, which is an important sector of the Brazilian economy. In this context, design is considered a potential tool to minimize the negative environmental impacts of this sector. Thus, this research aims to analyze the development and production of shoes from the sustainable design perspective to reduce the leather waste generation. Thus, a case study in a footwear company situated in the Brazilian state of Rio Grande do Sul is presented. Data was collected from in loco visit, observation and interviews. Subsequently a content analysis relating the collected data and the theoretical framework is presented. Results demonstrate that the application of concepts and strategies from sustainable design in the development and production of footwear, in the studied company, generated satisfactory results in terms of minimizing leather waste without losing competitiveness.Keywords: design, sustainability, solid waste, footwear development.

  • Design and handicrafts: The importance of interdisciplinarity in
           collaborative design practice

    • Authors: Luiz Lagares Izidio, Barbara de Oliveira Cruz, Rita Maria Couto, Luiza Novaes, Jackeline Lima Farbiarz
      Abstract: The focus of this article is on the relationship between design and craftsmanship in the Brazilian scenario of social projects with craft production. It presents the importance of collective and collaborative actions as forms of mediation in this scenario. The article argues that in order to develop a design mindset that expands beyond projective practices and takes into account the social and political context for more sustainable solutions in environmental, social and economic levels, the mediation has to be collaborative. In the paper, a parallel is outlined between this collective, collaborative and complex work of design and the multidisciplinary, interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary approaches. To address the complexity of this subject, practical examples are identified to show the important strategic role that the designer plays in these social innovation processes.Keywords: crafts, collaborative design, social innovation, interdisciplinarity.

  • Design strategies in hospital pharmacy department: Mapping a medication

    • Authors: Arina Blum, Giselle Schmidt Alves Díaz Merino, Eugenio Andrés Díaz Merino
      Abstract: Pharmacy departments are technical and administrative units in hospitals that relate to several other departments, and thus they have a strategic status on supervising the medication system. The hospital pharmacy department has an important role on patient safety, as it can work on error prevention, avoiding mistakes on the process. If there are no precautions implemented on medication system, there will be greater risk of errors, which could unavoidably harm the patient’s health. In this context, this article reports a research applied on a psychiatric hospital in the state of Santa Catarina, Brazil. The following issue was the starting point of the research: how is the configuration of the medication system in this hospital' The objective was to analyze the system, through mapping, in order to identify strategic opportunities for design. Results demonstrate that the medication system is integrated to the pharmacy, and depends on it. Results also suggests that strategic design interventions on storage, fractionation, separation and dispensation of drugs could contribute to the safety of the system as a whole.Keywords: strategic design, hospital pharmacy department, medication system, error prevention.

  • Integrated image management: The contribution of design

    • Authors: Emilio Tavora Vilar
      Abstract: This paper assesses the contribution of design to the process of image construction within the context of organizations, substantiating the importance of its integrated management. It focuses on design’s instrumental role in ensuring that the meaning, performance and appearance of an organization’s products, services, environments and communication are consistent with both its strategy and goals. The coordination and integration of design within the framework of an organization is discussed in relation to its recent history. A definition of design management is proposed, its relevance and operational boundaries clarified, with a particular focus on image management and the relationship between design and visual identity: the organization’s nucleus of identification.Keywords: design, image management, visual identity, organizations.

  • Collaborative learning by way of human-centered design in design classes

    • Authors: Iana Garófalo Chaves, João Paulo Bittencourt
      Abstract: The design classes are part of the bachelor curriculum of Brazilian Design. These classes are usually preceded by others that present the fundamentals and methodologies for product development. This paper adopted the human-centered design (HCD) for its potential to serve some of the needs and complexities of current projects and contexts. In order to foster rhetoric and multidisciplinarity among design students, collaborative learning emerges as an opportunity to practice design in a multidisciplinary way, due to the need to develop collaboration skills, as well as the transcendence of cognitive bias arising from individual activities. This article used knowledge construction processes in particular: the externalization and elicitation of task-relevant knowledge and consensus- building. Thus, the aim of this study is to propose an approach between design steps (taking HCD as the basis) and collaborative learning, based on their dimensions, in order to understand and address some of the current complexities and requirements of human, social aspirations and, consequently, projects. This approach demonstrates that the collaborative learning opportunity provided by the use of HCD can be driven by an adherence to the collaborative knowledge construction view. Real opportunities for the co-construction of new meanings stand out among the results of this approach, so that the learner can understand the complexities inherent to the design and to human beings, and can recognize and apply them in new and different situations.Keywords: design education, human-centered design (HCD), collaborative learning, collaborative knowledge construction, design classes.

  • Integrate system for materials classification in a multidisciplinarian
           materials library

    • Authors: Lisiane Ilha Librelotto, Paulo Cesar Machado Ferroli, Luana Toralles Carbonari
      Abstract: The amount of materials for designers to use in their projects has greatly increased in the last years. New formulations, new blends, new composites, new additives, and the achievements of nanotechnology and modern manufacturing processes contribute to this continuous increase. The correct classification and virtual and physical data provision assists in the materials selection process. This paper shows an integrated system classification by using the barcode reader available for android systems. Reading the codes in material samples are directed to the materioteca website. On the website the designer gets the technical information for this material.Keywords: design education, sustainability, eco-design, library materials.

  • Transdisciplinary Design: Tamed complexity through new collaboration

    • Authors: Leonardo Andrés Moreno, Erika Rogel Villalba
      Abstract: The following essay aims to expose the characteristics of Transdisciplinary Design and its relationship with design thinking, applying both as complex problem-solving strategies. In order to achieve this, we must briefly explore the characteristics of design thinking and non-uni-disciplinary strategies and subsequently describe the reasons why design can be considered as a privileged platform for problem-solving strategies for the more complex problematics of our contemporary society; ranging from transdisciplinary design as well as the differences with regard to design thinking model. Keywords: transdisciplinarity, design, complexity, design thinking, non-disciplinary approaches.
