Data Patterns Catalogue

Privacy-related pattern libraries are a neat tool for designers. While not necessarily ready to use in a “plug-and-play” matter (the list of Pros and Cons commonly is just too complex to re-use patterns 1:1), they provide valuable pointers to reflect on possible design options.

I'm Sebastian, Sociologist and Interaction Designer. This journal is mostly about bringing toge­ther social science and design for inclusive, privacy-focused, and sustainable "human-first" digital strategies. I also tend to a "digital garden" with carefully curated resources.

My monthly email newsletter has all of the above, and there are of course also an RSS feed and Twitter.
