“The Human Centred Design Institute, led by Professor Joseph Giacomin, head of design and perception enhancement systems research at Brunel, and Professor Neville Stanton, a member of the DTI Human Factors National Advisory Committee, will pull together a host of design consultancies and practitioners, academic researchers, engineers and scientists, to develop ‘design processes for the 21st century’. [...]
Over the next three years the centre is to publish design textbooks and will organise seminars and an international conference on user-centred design, to be held in London in early 2009.
A newly created one-year MA course in user-centred design launches this autumn, and undergraduate design students will have access to the centre’s teaching resources.”
Not a very promising design statement however is the poorly implemented website of the centre. It even has technical problems, with lack of font consistency, under construction pages, not-loading photos, and jumping text margins.
