Chapter Two. Managing Complexity
During the process of design, an Interaction Designer attempts to construct meaningful visualizations between individual components in an effort to understand hidden relationships. The ultimate goal of the creation of these visualizations is to understand. By reframing ideas in new and interesting ways, a designer can gain a deeper understanding of the abstract and semantic connections between ideas. These visualizations can then be used to communicate to other members of a design team or as platforms for the creation of generative sketching or model making. The act of diagramming is a form of synthesis and is a way to actively produce knowledge.
