Here's the video of our session with @Utrecht_CM, where I share my perspective & we discusses these questions & more as a group.
Many thanks to @marcelzwiers for inviting me, to @anous for introducing us, and to Vincent van der Velde for the video! 🙏🏼
BREAKING: Great win for privacy! 🥳💪 The EUGH just declared German data retention law illegal. We explain why this is a good thing & why the fight is not over:
It's also important to know that email was always exempt from the German data retention law.
The story: a creative team including Froukje Sleeswijk-Visser & Jeroen van Erp used #VR & dialogue to help youths, residents, & city gov to co-design neighborhood improvements in Eindhoven.
My key takeaways:
🙌🏼 For #social change, it’s usually more effective to mobilize the silent majority than to try to ‘turn’ a radicalized minority.
🧭 If you want something done & no one’s doing it, then start it yourself.
🌍 We #designers need to work more holistically, creating systems, rather than just products, services, or experiences.
Thank y’all for inviting me!
My Top 5
☑️ Give bulk editing options
🙅🏽 Reduce interruptions & #notifications
🧑🏽💻 Human customer support
🌳 Encourage focus & downtime
🙊 Discourage micromanagement
My 2 cents: I prefer to simplify the #UI instead of adding walkthroughs or mini-tutorials. They’re great when people ask for help. But when they appear automatically, they’re just another interruption.
Dieter Rams says “Good design is thorough down to the last detail.” 🔬 Yes! Why?
Because as Ram Dass points out: “We are all affecting the world every moment, whether we mean to or not.” 🔭
Every (#design) decision we make impacts someone else. It’s up to us to make sure that impact helps them, rather than causing them harm.

My colleague noticed this sign in the bathroom at Alan Turing institute.
Using art & (digital) design to make our world more equitable & loving. 🧠+💚
