We’ve been keeping our focus on work, even with the impeachment officially official! We were so focused that we had fewer links in our trove this week, but don’t worry, here are the best of the best (and they aren’t impeachment related, promise): I love the Olympics and beautiful design,

Another busy week here at Logic Dept! Clair has spent most of it locked in the conference room making the map above – so, basically, they were in heaven. But enough about us. To the links! If I had a dollar for every time someone has said, “we don’t need

Here we are in 2020! I spent much of the break baking (like the delicious vegan chocolate cake above)! Now we’re back to the grind and excited about the new year and all the possibilities it presents. We’re currently focusing all of our energy on our very fun project with

Another week of bizarre weather here in Brooklyn – it was 60 on Tuesday! But we made it through and are looking forward to a cozy weekend. I personally plan to make a giant pot of kale and white bean soup (yummmm). But before that… the links! My passion and

We made it through yet another fun week! Clair has been spending most of their time on-site at the Brooklyn Museum for our latest project and we are excited about how that’s progressing. And we hosted our annual Giving Thanks party on Tuesday – thanks to all those who were

Woah, where did the week go and where did the cold weather come from?! Clair was out and about giving a talk on inclusion not once, but TWICE this week (image above from their talk courtesy at Brooklyn Product Design). We are looking forward to bundling up with tea at

It has been another lovely week in the Logic Dept. offices! And can you believe the colors we’re seeing out of our office window?! We recently welcomed Suzanne Pettypiece as a new officemate and are so glad to have her brilliance in our midst. And in links, we have… Way

We love qualitative data. We could spend all day digging through a mine of transcripts and notes. People tend to have a hard time understanding how we find gold in our research. So, we really appreciate this video that Nielsen Norman Group recently released. It offers a simple breakdown of

Kathryn Whitenton from Nielson Norman Group tackles an important question in this video. Do we still need IA? Obviously, we say yes we have a whole company built around it! Watch this video to see what pros from Nielson Norman Group have to say. Use of the term UX has
