Description

Designers, especially design students, rarely have access to children or their worlds when creating products, images, experiences, and environments for them. Therefore, fine distinctions between age transitions and the day-to-day experiences of children are often overlooked. Designing for Kids brings together all a designer needs to know about developmental stages, play patterns, age transitions, play testing, safety standards, materials, and the day-to-day lives of kids, providing a primer on the differences in designing for kids versus designing for adults. Research and interviews with designers, social scientists, and industry experts are included, highlighting theories and terms used in the fields of design, developmental psychology, sociology, cultural anthropology and education. This textbook includes more than 150 color images, helpful discussion questions and clearly formatted chapters, making it relevant to a wide range of readers. It is a useful tool for students in industrial design, interaction design, environmental design, and graphic design with children as the main audience for their creations.
