Vassilis Skandalis is a multidisciplinary graphic designer based in London. He is the Senior Designer of Mixmag and the founder of RGB Complex; a design studio with projects that exist at the forefront of culture. He has worked with brands like IKEA, Vodafone, Ballentines and Apple but through his love for music he also finds himself working with music artists like Sherelle, Slum Village, Kamasi Washington and more. His research practice focuses on privacy, surveillance and big data. Through his work Vassilis advocates the ethical and fair use of personal data. His latest project Data Trail 2.0 is an example of how interactive design can be used to educate and inform through experiential learning and narration. Data Trail 2.0 is a response to the current universal debate about the centralised and decentralised models for Covid-19 digital tracking. The project focuses on how data collected by digital tracking should be handled. The project prompts the stakeholders of digital tracking to become aware of the consequences for privacy, and to create and use privacy-by-design tools. Raising individual awareness may help prevent a surveillance-state response to the pandemic.
