About me
Hey there, guys! Meet Nadine Grant – a gal who's all about User Experience, storytelling, and making things pop with creativity. She's got this amazing knack for diving into challenges and making users smile with solutions that really hit the spot. With more than 5 years in the game, Nadine's been working her magic in the realms of UX, Design & Education. She's strutted her stuff at places like Ogilvy, IDEO, Made by Many, The Dots, and Capita – you name it, she's rocked it. Right now, she's on the hunt for remote freelance gigs – so if you need some UX wizardry, you know who to call! Oh, and guess what? She's levelling up her skills with a masters course in Human Computer Interaction Design. She's a dynamo on a mission. And yes, Nadine's got a stylish twist: she's dyslexic by design. So if you spot any quirky typos, just roll with the creative flow!

  • Unconscious bias: why there is no quick fix and how we can work together to resolve it.
    Unconscious bias: why there is no quick fix and how we can work together to resolve it.We recently launched a ‘blind recruitment’ tool - where candidates are assessed solely on their skills & creative output - with the aim of giving recruiters the option to challenge their unconscious biases in the first stage of shortlisting candidates. Of course, in a bias-free world, we wouldn't need 'blind recruitment'. But until then, like ‘blind’ orchestra auditions where musicians are judged solely on their musical quality, it's one of the small drops that can create an ocean of change.
