She has over 10 years design experience and believes that design is a craft.

Talk: Client Vs Good design - strategies for avoiding conflict (brought to you fresh from the field)

At some point it’s inevitable: you will be working on a great project when you are asked for changes which can potentially turn a great project into an OK one. Being a good UX’er or designer makes you care about the design outcome, so this kind of situation might present some challenges.

In this talk I present some strategies for keeping designs good, techniques for conflict avoidance, and why your “soft skills” and not just your design skills matter.

    Is anyone interested in a Social Ticket for Interaction 14? You get access to the Welcome Party on Wednesday (5th Feb) and the Interaction Awards Celebration on Saturday (8th) Feb.

    ticket cost 70 euros (and I paid the C02 offset, so you'll be green)

    I'm open to offers.

    See you tonight.
