This project is about giving users insight into how their data is viewed by others. We split this into two realms: how individuals see you (e.g. Facebook), and how machines see you (the NSA, advertisers, etc.).
My team developed the project in a class taught by Clay Shirky at NYU ITP. I designed the UI in a Metro aesthetic, having read through the style guide in my time at Microsoft.
Mine project presentation at the 2013 Microsoft Research Faculty Summit as part of the Design Expo – Making Data Useful: Improving Your Life, Community, and World.
This project won Best System Design

This was the logo for the project. It plays off the idea of the system being a warning sign for something dangerous ahead. Some prior sketches are also below.
