InformeDesign, a clearinghouse for design and human behavior research, is a close working collaboration between the American Society of Interior Designers and the University of Minnesota.
InformeDesign is a research and communication tool for designers of the built environment, such as interior designers, architects, landscape architects, and graphic designers. It contains a database of Research Summaries about design and human behavior research, accessible through either a full-text search or by using the topics listed within the three main categories, Space, Issues, or Occupants.
Due to lack of continued funding, InformeDesign has been placed in idle mode. You will still have access to all of the Research Summaries, Implications, and continuing/professional education courses; however, no new information will be added.
