CPES2018 Masterclasses – Using Human-Centred Design Principles in Product Design

May 22 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT


This interactive workshop will explain how paying attention to the basics of human-centred has substantial economic and social benefits for users, employers and suppliers. During the two hours, you’ll learn, via practical examples and cast studies, how to apply principles proven to help create more usable systems and products, which tend to be more successful both technically and commercially.

The focus will be on how empathy-led design and ethnographic techniques are employed to create products that are resonant, relevant, and profitable. The workshop will include a chance for the participants to explore their own product design challenges, and offer techniques and insights into how to explore the voice of the customer in engineered product design.

You will learn how to

  • When and how to consider integrating design into your new product development process
  • What are the benefits of great designs in terms of use-ability, product appeal through examples and cases
  • Apply best practices in your design, how to avoid pitfalls
  • Engage with your end-users for design related input

Workshop/Master Class Leader:

Dylan Horvath, President of Cortex Design, a product design and manufacturing firm in Toronto’s burgeoning art and design district. He will discuss industrial design best practices for electronics.
