This paper is integrated in our research project on fostering sustainable user behaviour by designing meaning. It explores different types of meaning in products and services, and their creation. For that, the results of a literature study are integrated into an initial taxonomy of meaning and an initial framework for creating meaning. From the taxonomy we derive four roles that products and services can play in meaning making. Additionally we discuss how five possible interventions in users meaning making for behavioural change can be pursued by design on the basis of the framework. We illustrate the role of designers in creating meaning with examples, touch on its potential for behavioural change of users and outline further research needs. [less ▲]

The focus of our research is to support designers in fostering a more sustainable behaviour of consumers by creating meaning in products and services. The paper describes the results of a literature study into the process of meaning making and the mechanisms through which meaning affects consumer behaviour. Meaning is defined as a mental representation of possible relationships. An initial model, the Meaning-Behaviour Model, is presented, integrating the mechanisms found in literature. Five possible interventions, derived from the model, show how designers can use meaning as a lever to foster enduring behavioural change. The paper contributes to the discussion of introducing meaning through design by exploring the link between meaning and behaviour. [less ▲]
