Estelle Berger, Designer & Design Researcher PhD
Design Practice / Action Research / Active Teaching / Experiments

First trained as a Product Designer, I obtained in 2014 a PhD in Applied Arts for research on the Reflective Practice of Design. Supported by theory and an analysis of practice in context, my research investigates the singularity of designers and their roles in companies and society. I focus on Ethics as a constant introspection and assessment of action in the professional force field. As a Researcher & Assistant Professor at Strate School of Design (Paris), I accompany Experience Design and Cross-disciplinary Projects, putting an emphasis on the sensitive and imaginary dimensions. In this line, I supervise two on-going PhD thesis (Design + Information & Communication Sciences, Telecom ParisTech + industrial partners Emakina & OTIS). Based on Action Research, my activities aim at developing a Toolbox for professional practice. As a consulting designer, I specialize in Experience Design, with a predilection for the promotion of Handicrafts through design.
