We’ve started to use a very simple system of ‘Checking in’ for each of our meetings. By taking the plunge and doing it, we’ve discovered quite a few unexpected benefits.
With web technologies improving year on year, we are no longer bound by it’s constraints rather they are unlocking the possibilities for true web design.
The latest Clearleft internship project has just come to an end. It’s been truly inspiring.
I launched a new event as part of UX Brighton this month, a series of Lightning talks with the purpose of encouraging more people to share what their learning in a public space.
People of Brighton (and environs), I have a reminder for you. Did you know that there is an open device lab in the Clearleft office?
In the space of one week, Brighton played host to three excellent conferences…
This week, we learnt, shared, and learned some more.
This is second and final of the Hero’s Journey UX Workshop. This part of the workshop is about identifying opportunities to help each hero along their journey and designing value proposition that embody those opportunities.
It was only last week that myself and Ellen were brainstorming ideas for a combined workshop. Our enthusiasm got the better of us, and we said “Let’s just do it!” Before we could think better of it, the room was booked, and the calendar invitations were sent.
This week Ellen and Jeremy have run some excellent content workshops. Yesterday morning Ellen provided ace ideas to help kick-start the writing process, and today Jeremy gave us Post It-tastic pause for thought as to different ways to structure what we write. In pairs, we told well-known stories using just a handful of key narrative points. Andy T and I ended up doing this for two films: Back to the Future, and Elf.
‘So, how’s your week been?’ ‘Not bad. The project is going pretty well, the client seems happy.’ ‘Sounds like it’s going well. Do I hear a but in there?’
The Hero’s Journey is a two-part workshop that guides project stakeholders and team members through identifying solutions that solve real problems for real people.
I can confirm that the week just past was indeed, a week.
11 November has us hosting a special edition of UXBrighton at 68 Middle Street and we’d like you to take part.
Type-tastic News: our super typography conference, Ampersand, will return in November.
After experimenting with personas in my first project at Clearleft, I decided to reflect upon what I learned and share a few thoughts about how storytelling can be used as a powerful tool to evoke empathy and create shared understanding throughout the design process.
