blueegg, in conjunction with our friends from Sustain Digital, are the proud hosts of the Enterprise UX Sydney MeetUp. Our final event for 2018 saw Marla Mitelman from BCG Digital Ventures come along and talk to us about her vision for the Future of Design in 2019.
This was our last event for 2018, but we’ve got plenty more coming your way next year, including our first collaboration with IxDA for the Design Operations Essentials day with Dave Malouf in January 2019. Stay tuned for more EUX Sydney events in 2019.
“Design IS about communication, and I think words in your designs are so critical to be able to communicate something you want”
In this episode of Plastic Grass Square, Aaron talks to Richard about the importance of good microcopy, how to build good teams that work well together and what Richard is looking forward to in 2019.
Richard is the User Experience Lead at PreviousNext; an agency specialising in user experience design and developing large-scale Drupal websites for clients such as ServiceNSW, Transport for NSW, Amaysim and UTS.
He’s an interaction and user experience designer with a focus on the product and ecommerce space. On the side he also runs a blog which showcases effective examples of Good Microcopy – goodmicrocopy.com
Ben Pecotich from Dynamic 4 is our Plastic Green Square guest for October. Aaron had a wide ranging chat with Ben covering the foundations of Dynamic 4, what Social Enterprise is all about and how new designers can make themselves stand out in a noisy marketplace.
“More experienced Design Leaders who are recruiting teams don’t hire UX Designers without some kind of slash, like Design Research or Prototyper or Visual Design”
Ben strongly believes that engaging and empowering people is a powerful and sustainable approach to achieving positive change. He’s an active supporter of social enterprise and ways of applying collaborative consumption, collective impact, and other sharing economy principles and practices.
Founder and managing director of Dynamic4 (a 16 year old purpose-driven design & innovation company, and certified B Corp). Co-founder of two social enterprises: Jetpack for Changemakers, and Better Goals.
