Contextual design (CD) is a user-centered design process developed by Hugh Beyer and Karen Holtzblatt. It incorporates ethnographic methods for gathering data relevant to the product via field studies, rationalizing workflows, and designing human-computer interfaces.

Motivations and Key Principles

  1. The system design must support and extend users’ work practice.
  2. People are experts at what they do – but are unable to articulate their own work practice.
  3. Good design requires partnership and participation with users.
  4. Good design is systemic.
  5. The design depends on explicit representations.
