Insights about the daily work of design teams, when it come to handling (personal) data.

Exploring data as Material in Design Processes

Designers are neither afraid of complexity nor numbers. This is one the results of the survey to my master thesis, »Data and the Influence on User Centred Design«. I asked UX Designers about their relation with (personal) data in their working life. 150 of them took some time and answered the survey. The report gives an insight how designers and their teams work in different environments.
