    Supporting Transitions with Creative Software Engineering

    Create10 - The interaction design conference

    Edinburgh Napier University, UK, 30 June - 2 July 2010


    Clare J. Hooper and David E. Millard


    In this paper we explore the use of creative software engineering design methods, particularly for rebuilding experiences in new contexts. We present results from a comparative evaluation of three approaches (scenarios with personas, TAPT, and no formal method): these suggest that techniques such as brainstorming are helpful, while structure and formality can distract from the creative process. Scenarios’ user-focus was noted as positive, as were TAPT’s analytical output and abstraction of experiences away from their original contexts. The best approach to design may be to apply multiple methods in a complementary fashion.
