Design for Needs


Design for Needs

Many designers do straightforward design without considering some fundamental needs, here are some human needs which would be good to know in order to make good designs that respond to them.

People spend money in order to satisfy their desires and needs, but not all needs are worth spending money on. A designer has to know why people spend money in order to be able to design products and services that satisfy major desires. The following list is not based on Maslow’s hierarchy of needs; it is instead based on marketing and economics. I sincerely think, that knowing this list by heart could improve your skills as a designer, manager or design manager. Here is the golden list of needs, and type of companies that respond to them:

This article covers the Milano Games Week, it is not Comicon but people get their fair share of fun.

This year the Games Week, the largest Italian gaming event held at the new Milan Fair has ended. The show proved to be somewhat less exciting than the previous year, enhanced by the possibility to preview the next-generation consoles PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, but not devoid of many features planned for the coming months, including some even announced for late 2015. The organizational aspect, however, has not entirely convinced, as indeed precendete year, for reasons that we will explain later. Anche quest'anno il Games Week, il più grande evento videoludico italiano che si tiene alla nuova fiera di Milano, si è concluso. La fiera si è dimostrata per certi versi meno stimolante di quella dell’anno precedente,arricchita dalla possibilità di provare in anteprima le console di nuova generazione PlayStation 4 e Xbox One, ma comunque non priva delle molte novità previste per i prossimi mesi, di cui alcune addirittura annunciate per il 2015 inoltrato. L’aspetto organizzativo non ci ha però del tutto convinto, come d'altronde l'anno precendete, per dei motivi che chiariremo in seguito.
