A Question of Identity
University of Dundee
Digital Interaction Design Honours Project
Hi, I'm Alice Horton, a 4th year interaction design student at the University of Dundee. This is a research survey designed to collect broad, contextual information around the subject of personal identity. This information is to be used to generate insights that will inform my design and overall project this coming year. The survey will take 10-20 minutes of your time so feel free to grab a cuppa. The majority of the questions require text input so feel free to skip some of the questions you find uninteresting.
My project aims to create a product/service that improves the human experience of identity in some way, it's in very early stages so the data gathered using this survey will mainly be used to drive the project in a more focused direction to allow me to preform more detailed interviews. If you would be interested in taking part in the interview process feel free to contact me at
I am not responsible for any discomfort caused by the following questions. You can discontinue the survey at anytime. Hang in there!
The information you submit in this form:
- is anonymous as you like, every question is optional.
- will only be analysed by me.
- the results will only be presented to other design students and my two lecturers.
My lecturers are:
- Chris Lim
- Ewan Steel
I understand the purpose of the study and how my response will be used.
