This research provides a critical link to ensure designers remain at the forefront of developing safe, sustainable and innovative products and services in the future. The four key findings of this research contribute to the advancement of knowledge and provide an understanding of the relationships between designers' co-evolution approach and their use of analogy. The behavioural relationships between sketching and gesture were investigated. The outcome of this research is a Design Activity Framework. This framework demonstrates a novel understanding how designers design by concentrating on co-evolution, problem-framing and solution seeking.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
