Book of Dilemmas
for Designers

How to better understand people through their everyday dilemmas?
How to know which dilemmas are the most valuable?
How to generate design ideas to address such valuable dilemmas?

This booklet provides a visually engaging overview of what it is like to design with dilemmas. The main goal is to support an understanding of dilemmas from a psychological perspective and to help  create ideas for new products or services that address these dilemmas in a meaningful way. In this way, you can bring a unique human-centered design perspective to your work.
