The new app that consolidates the cards and information in one convenient, color-coded resource, taking the mystery out of unknown terminology with straightforward appeal to all levels and genres of design, making it easy for for teams to work together cohesively. Check out the video overview of the app and its features:
Loughborough University's Dr. Mark Evans, IDSA, spearheaded the well-designed app based on several years of Ph.D research in their Design Practice Research Group that had originally been published [PDF] in the form of actual cards in 2011. According to IDSA's recent announcement, the new concept was developed as part of an investigation of "barriers to communication during new product development and how these might be resolved."
The free app is now available on iTunes and Google Play.
