#7: We Should Think Into the Box

In the middle of Departure Hall 3 of Schiphol Amsterdam Airport, we talk with Professor Sicco Santema. He researches people in transit, through cooperation with large players in the field of mobility and travel, such as Schiphol Airport, KLM and Amsterdam RAI. He talks about why failure is good, if travelling is the new smoking, and how we can design mobility as something bigger than just your destination.

#6: An Audience with the Context Queen

How do you observe people to improve your design? In the latest IDE podcast episode, we take a deep dive into the world of context mapping with Froukje Sleeswijk Visser. She pioneered this design research methodology as a way of gaining insight into the user of future designs. Listen to Froukje and you will never look at the colour of your Wi-Fi router in the same way. Also in this episode: Ianus exercises some demons about his secret childhood hatred for skating.
