About This Blog

This blog is about the practice of design work, specifically about interactive design work.Use the tag cloud to browse my research on design and time use. Specifically I researched how interactive agencies use time-tracking tools and what effect this has on creative work, and the home life of creative workers.

Two peer-reviewed papers emerged out of this research:

Ladner, S. (2008). Laptops in The Livingroom: Mobile Technologies and the Divide Between Work and Private Time Among Interactive Agency Workers. Canadian Journal of Communication, 33(3), 465-491.

Ladner, S. (2009). “Agency Time”: A Case Study of the Postindustrial Timescape and Its Impact on The Domestic Sphere. Time and Society. 18(2/3). 284-305

Topics on this blog are work/life balance, creativity and innovation at work, organizational change, and critical management studies.

I do not update this blog, as it stands as an archive for my past research on design firms. Visit my other blog on design research and strategy.
