You’ve heard of lean UX, but have you thought about applying it to content design?

Designing content for phones means designing for a device that's at hand 24/7. So should we be more holistic in our design thinking and consider users' mental health too?

We discuss Kate's recent research into the impacts of device usage and what it means for the future of content design.
Note these are Kate's own opinions from her research and not those of the BBC.
