needed in UX research and how research that includes design as a part of research aimed at supporting and advancing UX design practice. We do this by investigating types of design-inclusive UX research and by learning from real-life cases of UX-related design research. We report the results of an interview study with 41 researchers in three academic research units
where design research meets UX research. Based on our interview ﬁndings, and building on existing literature, we describe the diﬀerent roles design can play in research projects. We also report how design research results can inform designing for experience methodologically or by providing new knowledge on UX. The results are presented in a structured palette that can help UX researchers reﬂect and focus more on design in their research projects, thereby tackling experience design challenges in their own research.
