design tools survey

An assignment by Manuel Schmalstieg at EAA La Chaux-de-Fonds. The students had to produce a survey of tools and methods used in a professional field.

A class of Interactive Design students created a “2018 survey” of design tools used by digital agencies, in Switzerland and France.

The tasks involved:

  • Defining the questions of the survey.
  • Selecting an online survey tool (we chose Typeform)
  • Building a contact list to mail out the survey.
  • Creating a Mailchimp newsletter to send out the survey and allow for follow-up.
  • Designing a visual concept for the presentation of the survey results (we used Figma).
  • Coding the website.

Time available: 28 hours (in 7 sessions).
