    Design is a restless field positioned as a productive practice in between conceiving and making. Design research is no less volatile, as it explores, explains and challenges what we know in and through design. "In the Making! is the theme of the first Nordic Design Research Conference. The conference invites contributions from researchers working internationally in universities, design schools and industry who share an interest in understanding and developing design as a trans-disciplinary practice that is always in the making. The scope of the conference reaches beyond the traditional design disciplines and includes other research areas with common interest in how people shape and make sense of things in an increasingly man-made world. The conference directs its interest towards the diversity, challenges, emerging practices and understanding of design. Rather than searching for common definitions or a unified approach to design, "In the Making" addresses the frontiers of design research as it is practiced in a broad array of academic fields. The conference theme reflects a range of issues that characterize design and design research today. This book and its accompanying CD-ROM presents an overview, highlights and proceedings of "In the Making".
