Products and solutions that are successful put their users at the heart of their design process. When you have a deep understanding of your users, you can better understand the problem that you are solving and in turn create a solution that makes a difference.

Instructional designers and learning and development practitioners who want to:
Move from taking orders to leading strategy and performance driven initiatives.
Create solutions that meet the needs of their users and in turn solve business problems.
Compliment their existing skills and take them to the next level with this highly desirable and results driven skillset.
Create solutions that engage, impact and change the behaviours of the users they are designing for.
This playbook was designed by the founder of Belvista Studios, Kim Tuohy, in partnership with Hannah Grennan, a learning experience designer in the Belvista Studios team (with a background in Psychology, as well as an interest in humans and how we design for them).
Kim and Hannah have a strong interest in Human-centred Design and have been researching the approach, presented to others in the industry on how to apply it and ultimately have incorporated it into the processes that they use for projects at Belvista Studios.
Both Kim and Hannah are inspired to share their knowledge and experience of using Human-centred Design and feel confident that it will add value to others in the industry.
What if I cannot gain access to my users?
That’s ok. Activities can be based on assumptions and research, allowing you to empathise to a certain extent without jumping in and designing something for them without considering them at all.
Are there any types of projects where Human-centred Design does not add value?
We haven’t come across any yet.
Can I connect with your team for further support and coaching throughout this process?
You can invest in coaching with us if you like. There will also be a discussion function once you have purchased the playbook. You may want to take advantage of the many other ways you can interact with us, such as Instagram, YouTube and LinkedIn.
