Design is about finding solutions to problems in an effective and efficient way. Attempting to solve problems through a design process is an interactive and iterative activity that draws on the input from multiple users and stakeholders existing in specific contexts. The interactivity and iteration of the design process allow a designer to gather knowledge about the world and the problem at hand from multiple disciplines. Fusing disciplines is an important aspect of problem-solving through design. This is because real-world problems are complex and require insights from different sources of experience and information. Not only do different disciplines provide varied perspectives, subjectivities, and insights, but also their own structures. Employing multiple disciplinary processes and insights assists in creating the right research questions, creating strong hypotheses, driving innovation, and creating rich post-hoc reviews. The solutions to complex issues gain strength and credibility through disciplinary consensus.
