In this article we consider the implications and effects of the evolution of technology in the design process and its consequences, we explore different points of view on how to use or integrate technology in the design process, as well as how to adapt to the design cycle. of software development, new methodologies specific to designers and that have emerged as a result of the paradigm shift from product to service. New technologies provide new creative places and sources of inspiration for designers; however, the future and evolution of design is not just about the use of new technologies; the new century implies a paradigm shift that is general and also affects all disciplines related to technology (for example, engineering, medicine, education, law, social sciences and humanities). The causes of the situation in which some of these disciplines find themselves (e.g., design and art) are currently outside the discipline itself and are mainly found in other areas such as social changes due, for example, to technological development. Therefore, it is crucial that changes in vision and social and human points of view are taken into account to influence new models and methodologies in software engineering. For elo we start from the assumption that programming, like natural language, is an “object to think about”, which makes it an outstanding challenge for humanists and a way to rethink the way information technologies are used..
