Levels of Context: The impact of zoom on the contexts we research, design for & implement within
I had the fortune of presenting on a topic of great interest to me – context – at UX Australia this past August. I was inspired to think about how we can best design with different levels of context in mind. Using Ray and Charles Eames’ “Levels of Ten” short film as a model, I discussed how zooming in and out to different levels of context impact how we think about what we’re designing, and have different factors of consideration at each level. I begin to touch on the impact of this zooming on the work we do, but it certainly warrants more discussion and consideration. I’m definitely not done with this topic – it keeps lingering.
