This doctoral research takes a dynamic, forward-looking and experiential perspective to examine the multifaceted relationship between design and nostalgia for two purposes: to serve as a ground-clearing work for analytical discussions about nostalgia in the design field, and to study the viability of nostalgia-driven design as a strategy for brand revitalisation.The investigation is developed from three design-related angles: nostalgia as a sociocultural phenomenon, as a subjective experience, and as the basis of a design strategy.
