It has been nearly 5 years since I last updated my site. I recently updated my portfolio with a new design, so figured it was time to update the site too.
Thoughts / UX
As I've said in a previous post, I'm a sucker (hoarder) for good design books.
When lockdown first begin back in March, I had the opportunity to finish some courses I had started in late 2019.
I was recently asked to present a lightning talk at our monthly UX Glasgow meet-ups.
The third and last part of my talk on UX, covering UX fails, and can UX save lives...
The second part of my talk on UX, covering: the differences between UX & UI; the benefits of UX.
I presented a talk back in Oct 2019 to colleagues describing what UX is, and why I believe it should be embedded within the delivery of any solution where an end-user exists.
I’ve become a bit of a hoarder of UX/Design books. I prefer the printed book when it comes to these for some reason... Probably because I can bookmark with post-it notes whenever I read something inspirational.
Last week I had the great pleasure of attending a two-day UX strategy workshop in Manchester, UK, led by Jared Spool, a widely respected and hugely knowledgeable UX practitioner.
UX Scotland is a hands-on, practical User Experience and Design conference for the software, web, and mobile community, held every year in Edinburgh.
I'm currently reading a couple of great books just now (when I can snatch some time here and there).
