Site M is an easy-to-use interactive website conveying artistic design methodology. It was developed with the aim to offer designers, marketers and engineers a new way for carrying out multidisciplinary projects. Based on the analysis of numerous design models from various fields, the website offers a generalised design process. The 50 most important approaches for an innovative designing were selected and explained with detailed case studies. Against the backdrop of a user-oriented interface design, the website provides users with two options for displaying the appropriate method: the map view gives an overview of all procedural methods including the individual design stages, while the index view presents them in alphabetical order. In addition, a colour coding further enhances the intuitive use of the website.
It provides a very visual and easy to use interactive tool to browse through the methods we believe will be very educational to novice design thinkers that are new to the field who want to know some of these methods and apply them to a real situation.
