Latimer worked with Samsung Design Europe and a community of digital tastemakers
to inform the user-centred design of the Samsung S9 and S10.
To map the lifestyles and tech use of millennial tastemakers , digital natives and trend followers in New York and London. This research needed to bring the lives and needs of Samsung’s potential user-base to life, for a wide audience of internal stakeholders.
Latimer used in-depth interviews, social listening and digital ethnography to build detailed lifestyle maps for different user groups. We produced broadcast-standard documentary videos to illustrate the key themes that emerged from our analysis.
The insights of this process informed the design of Samsung’s S9 handset and services. Latimer was re-commissioned to work with SDE again in 2017, to inform UX design for the S10.
