2 weeks ago I attended a speech of Jan Chipchase, who is a talented and experienced human behavioral researcher and currently working as the Executive Creative Director of Global Insights of Frog Design. He has been traveling around the world for a decade to observe and understand people from different cultures and how they behave and interact with other people and products. Through close observation (read: living in people homes) and analysis, he is able to retrieve valuable insights that can be turned into design opportunities.
You might have heard of him or read about him before, and if you haven’t then you should check out the following articles to learn more about this inspiring person:
