* Diagram by Jon Kolko

"I was introduced to this diagram by John Kolko early on when I started to occupy myself more seriously with the field of Interaction Design and its multiple definitions. As simplified model, I like Kolko’s way of thinking holistically about the field that focuses on human actions in a multidiscplinary manner. It builds a space for orientation and underlines the collaborative spectrum of design as a whole. As a designer I don’t want to constrain myself to one particular expertise, instead trying to embrace and learn from all branches as much as I can. Collaboration and openness are key here."
