Book of Dilemmas
for Designers

How can you search for dilemmas that help better understand end-users?
How would you know which dilemmas to address?
How can you generate design ideas to address these dilemmas?

This booklet is a visually engaging summary of the main insights into designing with dilemmas. It is designed to support human-centered designers in understanding the phenomenon of dilemmas from a psychological perspective and in creating ideas for new products or services to address these dilemmas in a meaningful way.

For deeper insights on designing with dilemmas, you can refer to my PhD work titled: Me against myself: Addressing personal dilemmas through design.
