Video conference selfie from my Telstra days

Hi, I’m Eri

… short for Erietta. I started this site to record and celebrate design and meet-ups and share what I’ve learnt as I’ve developed my design and research practice.

I trained as a creative and have worked in IT teams and design studios, consulting, and client-side. I’ve conducted and led behavioural research, UX, service design, customer experience, design thinking, innovation, and digital transformation projects since 2003. Most recently I managed the Product Design Team for Telstra’s Product Innovation and Strategy group and I’m currently Head of Customer Experience at Uniting.

I’m motivated by customer problems and insight, energised by communities of practice, teamwork and learning what works.

In my spare time I love watching films, live music, country road trips and spending time with friends and family.

Thanks for reading.
