Being Warm Being Happy


The University of Sheffield School of Nursing and Midwifery’s research project Being Warm Being Happy is working alongside adults with learning difficulties, to see how they heat their homes during winter. To help give structure to the conversations I was asked to design a series of cards to help convey feelings, concepts, people and objects. These were used alongside illustrated summaries of the participants living/heating arrangements, enabling researchers to gain insights that might have been overlooked in a traditional conversation.
