How often do you use your smartphone?🀳

157 people answered

Gen-Z reaching 8 hours 

In a survey I conducted in 2020, 157 people shared details about their daily smartphone usage. 

Within this user group, I interviewed 9 individuals with the highest amount of daily screen-time averaging at 8 hours. All in their early 20s. 

Average of 6 hours

50% of the 157 people admitted to spending about 1/4 of their day on smartphones. Age ranging from 18-60.

While all answered they are aware of the excessive use. Most still struggled to break out of their routines.

4 key questions

1) 'Yesterday after I woke up, I _____.'

2) 'In the afternoon, I _____.

3) 'In the evening, I _____.'

4) 'At night before bed, I _____.' 


By gathering quantitative and qualitative data, I was able to identify 

5 common unhealthy behaviors shared across 157 people in their daily digital interactions. 

In the illustration thesis, each animal was chosen strategically to reveal our digital behaviors that are similar to their characteristics. While the project first highlights the problems that come with digital convenience...

The main purpose is to provide users with simple and achievable solutions for how they can take charge in becoming more self-aware when engaging with technology!
