From cross-channel engagement to the Internet of Things, context is becoming more complicated for digital design. Drawing from his book, Understanding Context, Andrew Hinton shares insights on taming these challenges with models for how context works, and how users comprehend it. We'll look at models that help us understand the principles behind context, as well as models that help us analyze and create the environments people use.
