Abstract

Inquiry (11-16) monitors development, automates the internal flow of the design process, and functions as internal sensors. This monitoring checks and rechecks that the process is executing properly1. It is interactive and always operational if used by the design team. Inquiry provides a series of questions to be asked and answered during preproduction, production and postproduction. These questions outline the design of the product and allow for a review of the product before, during, and after production; this is a surface assessment. The list of questions is not exhaustive, but they provide a broad selection of questions meant to focus on the needs of the target audience, enable the design process, and screen for bias. These questions are reviewed and reiterated throughout the design process to keep it active.

Cbm Inquiry

Inquiry (11-16) monitors development, automates the internal flow of the design process, and functions as internal sensors. This monitoring checks and rechecks that the process is executing properly1. It is interactive and always operational if used by the design team. Inquiry provides a series of questions to be asked and answered during preproduction, production and postproduction. These questions outline the design of the product and allow for a review of the product before, during, and after production; this is a surface assessment. The list of questions is not exhaustive, but they provide a broad selection of questions meant to focus on the needs of the target audience, enable the design process, and screen for bias. These questions are reviewed and reiterated throughout the design process to keep it active.

Inquiry is divided into six design factors that provide a foundation for design applications in any form of information and communication technologies (ICTs).

  • I1. Genre: Aids in the selection of ICTs

  • I2. Framing: Assists in maintaining the target audiences perspective

  • I3. Omission: Helps in assessing a design

  • I4. Backgrounding: Helps in providing a balanced design

  • I5. Foregrounding: Helps in providing an objective design

  • I6. Visual representations: Assists in conveying meaning
