Conference Talk

How my Job as a researcher changed my view on Design

Nov 15, 2023

Empathy is not a tool, but a lifestyle we as designers need to weave into everything we do. But how do we make sure that we gain enough empathy, and how far do we actually need to go? When doing user research, we need to keep in mind that every data point has a story, that we need to listen to. In this workshop, we’ll play around with different research methods and learn how to gain empathy on different levels, and how to utilize these valuable insights in order to create effective products that speak to the user.
