A big hammer, talcum powder, salad, a cat, kite flying and a brewery tour. Find out what we got up to on our 2018 UXD away day.
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.

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.
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.
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.

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.
Slack (the communication software) is used by 5 million people on a daily basis (that's roughly the entire population of Norway), signed in for on average 10 hours per day - sending direct messages, sharing files, funny cat GIFS, making calls, you name it...
Design value should be measured in activities which contribute towards working software that delivers results.
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.
