Recently, RKS completed a series of ethnographic research trips to Africa. Before arriving, our researchers thought they had a sense about what would be the most urgent needs, prominent trends and critical design criteria they would see, however once they got into the field, some of these things began to change. RKS Anthropologist, Ross Mitchell, reflects on his experiences and how important holistic design research is for the process of creating empowering designs.
