World Health Organization


Masters Degree Dissertation / UX/UI Designer & Front End Developer

Health Behaviours In School Aged Children (HBSC) was a publication released every 4 years that asked school aged children from different countries and aged 11, 13 & 15 questions about their health behaviours.

We performed contextual inquiries with users; from academics to members of US congress. We then went on to create a proof of concept based on the user behaviour in the previous stage. We took tobacco usage data to show how the data could be visualised using simple web technologies like JavaScript/jQuery & JavaScript data vis library D3, which leverages the ability of SVG. This also provided the proof that research could be published as soon as the data was gathered and analysed.
