Effective Communication Of User Research Outcomes In Design For Well-Being: Adaptation Of The Design Well-Being Matrix In A Pregnancy Case



Design has turned towards positive psychology, noticing its potential beyond overcoming problems and tracing possibilities to enhance quality of life. As a newly blossoming domain, design for well-being faces with challenges like correct translation of well-being concept and advancing a shared language. Calls are made for empirical research to test, discuss and expand on already introduced materials. This paper exemplifies a use case of an existing framework, the Design Well-Being Matrix, and builds on it by demonstrating alternate use opportunities considering designers’ needs from user research deliverables. The case involves the utilisation of the framework as an analysis, synthesis, and communication tool in a research on characteristics of digital health technologies that aim at enhancing the well-being of pregnant women.
