Sid Lee uses UX to help mourners grieve through death

Vincent Ramsay, Senior Digital Creative Director, thinks the most exciting thing about experience design is its ability to improve day-to-day life.

With that aim in mind, Vincent and his team have been mining the possibilities of technology to assist in a difficult moment in our lives: death.

So, how could this ritual be revived using UX to accompany mourners on a personal journey? Find out here.
