Design research reports take on many different formats. Notice how each of these research reports (often referred to as “Case Studies”) tells a story. They aren’t just data, charts, and conclusions—they bring the human element into the story.

Research Report Examples

These examples specifically report research.

Research Reports with Design Prototypes

These reports share research outcomes and take the next step—design prototyping. These students in the xdMFA program conducted research and created outcomes based on their research.

Case Studies

The rest of these reports show a wide range of types of reporting. Most are geared toward stakeholders/supporters of each project and their communities.
