In this paper, we discuss the conceptual and practical relationships of three common products of design and design research: designs, prototypes, and scenarios. In addition, we examine the related actions of designing, prototyping, and writing scenarios. We suggest that rather than accepting the common understanding of these three artifacts and processes as distinct phenomena, it is useful to consider them as three aspects of a larger construct that is characterized by features such as invention, meaning-­‐making, reification of ideas, and mediation among interlocutors. This interpretation has consequences for our understanding of these artifacts and processes, both as potential means of knowledge production, and as attempts to define our disciplinary boundaries, suggesting that a relatively small shift in design practice could produce significant benefits for the field as a whole.
