Where in the world are you?
I’m from the UK. Yes, that place of wonderful weather and tea.
What stage of your career are you at?
Early stages, I think. Only been working as a UX and Service Designer for two years although I have been in technical roles and the arts/culture sector for about a year and a half before that.
What are you current challenges?
Although I primarily see myself as a UX designer, due to the nature of my role, my current challenges are mostly about improving my UI design skills. I find it difficult to come up with killer UI designs when given a set of requirements, especially when I don’t have access to users/customers to test design ideas on or to create user journeys and workflows. I think it’s partly because I’m not from a proper ‘design’ background (though I am an artist, I studied Physics at Uni) so there’s lots of things I’m still learning!
What aspect/s of UX are passionate about?
Making complex processes user friendly and accessible; using design to make data easier for people to digest - I’m really into citizen science, open governance, social justice and so on. Basically anything interesting and interdisciplinary!
Cats or dogs?
Why not both?
