This paper provides an overview of ongoing research at the inception stage of a PhD research project in the area of design and emotion, and discusses some of the key issues that have arisen out of the research to date. It outlines a pilot study that is planned to identify further avenues of research and considers the implications of the research on design education. The paper is part of research being developed by the Creative Design Research Group and taught on design courses, in the School of Design, Engineering and Computing at Bournemouth University. The paper illustrates how this can support the education and development of product and engineering design students in design education.
