Here is a homemade lexicon crafted with love by the Meaningful team.

Design dictionary

[ Co-design ]

Co-design from the latin co (with) and design (to conceive), originally from latin designare (to mark, to draw, to indicate).


Co-design is a dynamic that harnesses collective intelligence in innovation projects. Essentially, co-design allows users to explore and define concepts to better develop products and services. 

At Meaningful, co-design workshops mean more than having clients participate during the design phase. Indeed, co-design entails the active participation of users during the inspiration and exploration phase of an innovation project. We collaborate with users via workshops or individual interviews to come up with the best solutions for their needs.
