Information Architecture in 2018

The role of an IA has changed over time, with its popularity decreasing and the broader title of user experience (UX) increasing. Whilst still being a specialist role, it is more frequently seen as part of a broad set of skills that are used by product and UX designers.

Launching Red Badger Design School

What is the Red Badger Design School and why have we launched it? To create an opportunity for all of our teams to develop their design thinking, regardless of their role. We believe this helps our cross-functional teams deliver better results for our clients and we love doing it. See the pictures here.

Consultant skill 3: Inspire divergent thinking by asking

Most management consultants hone their skills in deductive, convergent thinking. Considering pros and cons and making informed decisions. Design consultants bring another skill to the table. Divergent thinking aims to create better options in the first place, before narrowing down and making decisions in the convergent phase. It requires an empathetic, generative, and optimistic approach.

Consultant skill 2: A more intentional inquiry

When a problem is initially stated, everyone assumes they understand it in the same way. That might be false because we tend to unconsciously fill the gaps with our own projections, and colour in the words with our own point of view. My aim for this article is to show how we can be more effective and intentional with our questions.

Circular is the new straight

We've seen a massive increase in the number of disruptive technologies emerging over the past few years. New tools, new tech and a new workforce have all fuelled this - we're no longer designing for a single, lonely user, but for an array of globally interconnected people. 

As this scale changes, so must our design.

Hats off to you developers

This time 3 months ago (give or take) I didn't have much of an understanding of how to code. I’d been working with digital products for two years by then but my background in product/industrial design meant that I had been focussed on creating models with my hands, using physical materials to visualise and prototype my designs rather than delving into software and programming.

Designing a talkative hockey puck

VUI is new territory for both developers and designers. Developers are ramping up their skills to make machines take inputs and make sense of them better, while designers work on making the interaction less mechanic
