Stories about design and designers from Tangity, part of NTT DATA Design Network. We think of design not as something physical but as an idea — the idea that we can improve everything. We know that when we see tangles in digital services or find ourselves trapped inside our own devices, design can help. We are The Untanglers, part of a global collective of enthusiastic and independent-minded individuals. We humanize complexity.
