What’s on your desk?


I love Xplane’s visual meditations but this one caught my attention today because it reminds me of a simple ethnographic approach I like to use in my consulting work.

For many people, their desk represents the intersection between their physical workspace and their digital workspace. So, this make it an interesting place to directly experience and observe as part of the user-centred design process.

However, where this isn’t possible maybe sketching your desk could be an alternative way of engaging with people about the people, places and things they interact with?
