Week 5 Readings

Design in Action Case Studies

By the Stanford d.school

We’ve provided several example case studies made by designers at the Stanford d.school—their design school. Give some of them a look to get a feel for telling a story while also presenting insights and research data. If you haven’t before, we’d also recommend looking around the d.school’s website. It contains many useful design resources.


Guiding Questions

  • How did one of the case studies frame the problem in an impactful manner? What made it so impactful?

  • How did a case study utilize visuals to more effectively convey a story?

  • The case studies balanced data with an approachable layout. What were some creative ways to present quotes and data while preserving visual cohesiveness?
