About the Design+Encyclopedia
The Design+Encyclopedia - Your Platform for Sharing and Discovering Design Knowledge.

The Design+Encyclopedia is an online platform that aims to provide a rich reference on design by award-winning professional designers, artists, architects, engineers, and innovators. Unlike traditional encyclopedias, the Design+Encyclopedia allows for the inclusion of subjective opinions and personal perspectives, in addition to objective facts, as design and art have many subjective contexts and considerations.

The Design+Encyclopedia differs from existing encyclopedia platforms in that it is crowdsourced, meaning that anyone can contribute to the encyclopedia, as long as they are an award-winning designer, artist, architect, engineer or innovator, or have good research skills, or are highly knowledgeable in their field. This allows for a diverse range of perspectives and voices to be represented, and ensures that the encyclopedia is constantly updated with the latest information.

Another unique feature of the Design+Encyclopedia is the inclusion of information on professional practices, critique and evaluation, cultural and societal contexts, and future trends, which provide a well-rounded perspective on the field. This enables designers, artists, architects and engineers to not only learn about different design styles and techniques, but also about the business and professional side of the field. Design+Encyclopedia includes information on design festivals and exhibitions, and design-related conferences and symposia, which can help designers, artists, architects and engineers to stay informed about upcoming events and opportunities to showcase their work and network with other professionals.

Design+Encyclopedia is a valuable platform for sharing and discovering design knowledge. Its unique features, such as the inclusion of subjective opinions and personal perspectives, crowdsourced content, and information on professional practices, critique and evaluation, cultural and societal contexts, and future trends, make it a valuable resource for designers, artists, architects, engineers, and innovators and great resource for professionals and enthusiasts in the fields of art, architecture, design, creativity and inspiration.

We hope that the focus on featuring contributions from award-winning designers, as well as research and biographical information on notable artists, architects, and designers, will help to establish the Design+Encyclopedia as a valuable source of information. It is our aim that the inclusion of both objective and subjective information on professional practices, critique and evaluation, cultural and societal contexts, and future trends, will provide a well-rounded perspective on the fields of design, architecture, innovation, creativity, engineering and arts.

Affordance Design

Affordance Design is a design approach that seeks to improve the usability of digital and physical products and services by creating intuitive user experiences. It focuses on creating relationships between the user and the product, through a combination of physical and digital elements. Designers use this approach to understand the user’s needs and goals, and to assess and design a product or service that meets those needs. The product or service should be designed to be intuitive and easy to use, and should provide feedback to the user in a timely and appropriate manner. Furthermore, designers should consider the user’s needs in terms of aesthetics, functionality, and usability when creating an affordance design. This approach can be used to improve the user experience of a wide range of products and services, from websites and mobile applications to home appliances and interactive displays. By understanding the user’s needs and creating an environment that is easy to use and engaging, designers can create an experience that is enjoyable, efficient, and safe.

Automation System Security Threat Modeling

Automation System Security Threat Modeling is a critical step in the design of any automated system, as it helps designers to anticipate potential threats and develop countermeasures to protect the system. This process involves identifying areas of vulnerability, assessing potential threats to the system, implementing countermeasures to reduce or eliminate the threats, and validating the effectiveness of the countermeasures. Additionally, designers must also assess the system’s ability to detect and respond to threats and develop countermeasures to protect the system from malicious actors. Security threat modeling can help to ensure that the system is secure, while also providing a level of resiliency in the event of an attack. Automation System Security Threat Modeling is essential for the design of any automated system, as it enables designers to anticipate potential threats and develop countermeasures to protect the system.
