User Experience & Content Designer

A bag at a train station, a promise made, a website designed with only one audience in mind. We’re all busy designers working hard with good intentions.


But sooner or later we’re going to forget things: Things that impact our own lives and things that impact others. Things that are big and things that are small. How much can we (and should we) be responsible for the things we forget? And what can we do to be better in the future?
