How to cook a caddie - Att utveckla ett designmönster för en deltagande manual (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to develop a design pattern for a manual that corresponds to the conditions of the international EU-funded Caddies project. The Caddies-project is working with issues regarding communication among inhabitants and their housing company, local cooperation and involvement of and between the inhabitants. This work is a qualitative case study. The design process is described step by step. In order to create a user-centric design, the starting point was to

get to know the target group and develop a pattern based on their needs.

Therefore, a fictional audience representative (a persona) is used, and a

fictitious scenario about how the persona would use the manual was

created.

A design workshop was held early in the designers work to get an idea of

what the audience is attracted to. Based on the results from the workshop,

three concepts were designed and subsequently tested on the target

group through interviews. The design was then developed from the interview results. The description of the design pattern is divided using the headings style and feel, layout, format, colors and fonts. It is supplemented with a sample solution that is presented visually and with text.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med detta examensarbete var att ta fram ett designmönster till en   manual som motsvarar det internationella EU-finansierade Caddieprojektets   förutsättningar. Caddie-projektet arbetar med frågor rörande   kommunikation mellan boende och deras bostadsbolag samt lokalt samarbete och deltagande av och mellan de boende. Detta arbete är en kvalitativ fallstudie. Designprocessen är beskriven steg för steg. För att skapa en användarcentrerad design är utgångspunkten i arbetet att lära känna målgruppen och utveckla ett mönster utifrån deras behov. Därför har en fiktiv målgruppsrepresentant (en persona) använts och ett påhittat scenario som handlar om hur målgruppsrepresentanten skulle använda manualen har skapats. En designworkshop hölls tidigt i arbetet för att börja få en uppfattning om vad målgruppen attraheras av. Utifrån resultatet efter detta tillfälle togs tre koncept fram som i sin tur testades på målgruppen genom intervjuer. Designmönstret togs sedan fram utifrån intervjuresultat. Beskrivning av designmönstret är uppdelat under rubrikerna stil och känsla, layout, format, färger och teckensnitt. Det är kompletterat med ett exempel på lösning som presenteras visuellt samtmed text.
