What you’ve described is standard design research.

It’s true that we all build on the work of others and there are many that have informed our Studio D’s work over the years.

The contexts in which we work, the technologies that are in the hands of participants, clients, and the team, the client’s ask, many other factors evolve over time, and push us to figure out new ways to make sense of the world.

Our practice builds on anthropology, usability lab based studies, clinical psychology, design, journalism (photo, investigative, gonzo), forensics, and PsyOps. There’s an art form to splicing together methods.

It is valid to say there are new methods. I look forward to seeing what others also come with.
