A Short Guide to Research (for Designers)
This short guide developed from a series of lectures presented at Portland State University on how to conduct research as a creative. The guide explains concepts of information literacy and how to conduct quality research online, while also serving as an introduction to key primary techniques like ethnography. Finally, unlike existing research books, this pocket guide also includes research tactics specific to design.
LIVD is an annual print publication produced in the Pacific Northwest, dedicated to the intersection of art, design, culture and how these influence lived experience. It is an experimental publication, created and designed by Meredith, and includes graphics and essays from authors across the country.
The publication exists in a limited edition print run of 150 for each volume. It is also archived through the Portland State University library, and each volume is available to the public approximately two years after the print release.
