Abstract: 

This paper discusses our preliminary analysis of how designer and non-designer participants discussed and engaged in design activity. For this research, we employed two design study experiments that included a total of forty-eight participants. In our preliminary findings we found differences between designers and nondesigners in how a design activity is analyzed. The more significant preliminary finding is that there were substantially less differences in how designers and non-designers engaged our design activity.
