Design Track @ MyData2017


In August/September 2017 I had the great chance to co-host the track on Human-Centred Design (HCD) within the MyData conference along with Ksenia Avetisova – Strategic Innovation Lead at Tieto Data Driven Business, Innovation Incubator and Tanel Mallo from Tallinn University.

The track aimed at exploring how Design can enable a human-centred approach to personal data and uncovering the path ahead and overcoming the challenges.

All the presentations and materials created for and during the design workshop and the two sessions which formed the track are available at this link:

The purpose of the study is to understand the point of view of smartphone users like you when it comes to manage privacy.

Thus this study is all about user experience, that is feelings, desires and needs when using privacy management tools for smartphone devices.


How is it structured?

The study is not meant to be question-answer interview rather it is designed to be a open discussion. To do so, you will be involved in a series of small workshops aiming to help you reflect on your experience.


How long it will last?

The study is designed to last 2 weeks the date of the follow-up interview will depend on the participant’s availability and only the workshops will be ideally conducted at the Loughborough Design School. However they might be arranged in different places if needed.

  • Taking part in this study will show you some tools about privacy management you may not be aware of, as well as enhancing your understanding of how applications manage your personal information.
  • Any participants will have the chance to win a 50 euros gift certificate to amazon.com.

Nathan Kinch, Head of Experience and Labs for Meeco on trust and consent experience canvas

Without trust, what do we have? Well, we have the current state of the internet economy, that’s what.
