Information

There’s simply too much content online. It is taking choice and ownership away from the user. This builds upon the user’s anxiety and decreases productivity. Infinite scrolls and hidden seams of interfaces push users into a limited routine. Forcing new processes with no allowance to use their own.
    I aimed to bring back ownership to the users within the online realm. This sense of ownership gives comfort and relieves them of anxiety that is produced due to information overload. Giving them agency and designing the result to be appropriable will also open a fresh perspective when it comes to using different interfaces. They could potentially start using these interfaces more in the way that they want to, to their advantage and get the most out of these interfaces they interact with.
