Like most of Jim's work, the Blindspot range holds elements of humour. Through extensive research into inter-personal relationships and social culture, he analyses the potential of using products as tools to understand relationships better and also believes that understanding relationships is an intense process which can be effectively conducted if the method involves an approach which is fun based.
Blindspot is a crossover between interaction and commentary design. It invites the user to identify the potential for greater communication with the partner, often by alternative methods to talking. Blindspot are one off products, created to experiment, ask questions and raise awareness.
