"Design thinking is the core creative process for any designer; this book explores and explains this apparently mysterious 'design ability'. Focusing on what designers do when they design, Design Thinking is structured around a series of in-depth case studies of outstanding and expert designers at work, interwoven with overviews and analyses. The range covered reflects the breadth of design, from hardware and software design, to architecture and Formula One. The book offers new insights and understanding of design thinking, based on evidence from observation and investigation of design practice. Design Thinking is the distillation of the work of one of design's most influential thinkers. Nigel Cross goes to the heart of what it means to think and work as a designer. The book is an ideal guide for anyone who wants to be a designer or to know how good designers work in the field of contemporary design"--
Designerly ways of knowing by Nigel Cross( Book )

47 editions published between 1982 and 2010 in English and held by 342 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The concept 'designerly ways of knowing' emerged in the late 1970s alongside new approaches in design education. Professor Nigel Cross, a respected design researcher, first articulated this idea in his paper 'Designerly Ways of Knowing' published in 1982. This book is a unique insight into expanding discipline area with important implications for design research, education and practice. This book traces the development of a research interest in articulating and understanding the idea that designers have and use 'designerly' ways of knowing and thinking. The following topics are covered: - nature and nurture of design ability; - creative cognition in design; - natural intelligence of design; - design discipline versus design science; and, - expertise in design. As a timeline of scholarship and research and a resource for understanding how designers think and work, this book will interest researchers, teachers and students of industrial and product design; design practitioners, and design managers."--Publisher description
