The authors, design practitioners and educators, bringing together in this book 15 years of knowledge, practice and research, have produced the first book about how, as a designer, to formulate a vision for new and appropriate products. They call this new approach Vision in Product Design (ViP). It strikes a good balance between structuring the process of design while allowing the designers to take a personal position and fully express themselves in producing a product. ViP is both a method and a design philosophy.
Besides explaining what ViP is all about, the book offers a rich array of narratives like conversations, cases, literature and creative materials (both academic and popular) and illustrations like models and pictures. Through these different pathways the reader will better understand ViP and will be able to interact with the book, both in practice as in educational context in more various ways.

Back cover copy

This book is about the design approach ViP, Vision in Product design. ViP is the label of a method that first and foremost supports innovators of any kind to 'design' the vision - the raison d'etre - underlying their design. This vision is firmly rooted in a deliberately constructed future world. Since the vision defines the goal and not the means, the method can be applied in innovation processes of any kind. Hence its current title: Vision in Design.
