Design with Intent toolkit – resource to encourage different perspectives on design

It’s been a long time coming, but a year after v.0.9, thenew Design with Intent toolkit, DwI v.1.0, is ready. Officially titled Design with Intent: 101 Patterns for Influencing Behaviour Through Design, it’s in the form of 101 simple cards, each illustrating a particular ‘gambit‘ for influencing people’s interactions with products, services, environments, and each other, via the design of systems. They’re loosely grouped according to eight ‘lenses‘ bringing different disciplinary perspectives on behaviour change.


This is such a brilliant set of resources to encourage a fresh look at design. It points out examples of how conscious design decisions have influenced the world around us. In the same vein as the also excellent The Psychology of Everyday Things by Donald A. Norman.
