Welcome to Tracing Paper

Since the founding of Traceable Change two and half years ago, empathy and curiosity have been the hallmarks of our identity. That essence is infused in our research, our design, and our conversations with clients and colleagues. We are fascinated by the plethora of experiences that impact how we think and behave. Some are big, some are small, some are amazing, and some are frustrating - or even infuriating!

Tracing Paper will shine a spotlight on these moments that make us pause and ask why.  It’s where we will ponder all aspects of human experiences.  We will cover a broad range of topics on the social, cultural, psychological, physical, digital, and spatial aspects of experience.  Sometimes we will even design alternatives, because that’s who we are. We just can’t help ourselves.

Here is a preview of some of our upcoming topics:

  • Global research: Discovering a cultural taboo that changed the direction of an app design
  • UX isn’t rocket science, but this is how we worked alongside rocket scientists
  • Our love-hate relationship with the Ventra system
  • The UX of home remodeling (and why Martin’s kitchen designer hates him)
