Why I blog
I read a lot. I take a lot of notes. I worry I’ll forget things. It’s only when I set myself a task – to summarise, draw a picture, make a list that it all sinks in. In that process of doing and making I cement my learning. And that’s why I blog. As it turns out this process builds a library of links, opinions, events, and moments in time of what I was reading, listening to, doing and thinking. So when I need to recall something it’s there for me to retrieve.
This blog is about my design practice, thoughts on the web and reports on related events in Sydney that I go to. I’ve built a library of HCD tools on Pinterest and I collect articles on people management and the work experience. I’m also on Twitter if you want to say hi.
I studied fine arts and design. I began as a visual designer before becoming a producer and interaction designer with the good fortune of working with a bunch of talented and obsessive developers on CMS and web application projects. I also got to be involved with WebDU. I earned my Human Centred Design chops on design research and service design projects with a bunch of practitioners who loved talking methodology and technique. It was hard, fun work and over this time I developed a strong interest in designing for people rather than screens. I joined a Customer Experience consultancy before my move in-house and now work as a Business Designer in the Design Practice which is part of Telstra Retail’s Strategic Change group.
