Annemiek van Boeijen works as a full time Assistant Professor at the faculty of Industrial Design Engineering – section Design Aesthetics.
My research and teaching mainly focuses on the role of culture in design processes and impact on societies. The aim is to develop knowledge and design methods & tools supporting designers to understand their intended users & the cultural context, and to design for it.

IDE celebrates its 50 anniversary, including an exhibition in which alumni present their graduation projects. Watch my story here.

March 2018 Valentijn Visch, Niko Vegt and I started the Healthy Storytelling project, a research-through-design project about obesity prevention through eHealth for people with low-literacy skills. We are interested in how storytelling can be used as a design element. Check it out here.
A new edition of the Delft Design Guide has been launched in Spring 2020, an overview of design models, perspectives, and methods for students, tutors, and practitioners. Since the first launch in September 2013, the design guide has already been translated into Chinese and Japanese, and has been applied in our Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) The Delft Design Approach (edX Delftx DDA691x).
In 2015 I defended my thesis ‘Crossing Cultural Chasms: Towards a culture-conscious approach to design‘. Doctoral thesis – AGC van Boeijen
More information on www.designandculture.info The site presents a set of cards for designers.
In collaboration with designer, artist, and IDE colleague Mark of Huystee , I made a world map in which a selection of thirty student projects (Joint Master Projects and Graduation) are depicted. In all these projects culture played a role in various ways; in some the design goal was to connect cultures.
