About me

 

Hi I’m Tim, and since January 2014 I have been transitioning from a 10 year career in the Edutech public and private sector. My transition to user-centred design for a multi-channeled world has been via many routes - mentors, attending MeetUps on UX trends, getting experience on real-world design projects, reading UX books, studying a Masters in both Research Practices and Cross-Disciplinary User-Experience Design, and observing & asking people questions to understand and solve problems. I believe that creating experiences involves exploring human-outcomes. whatever the design to meet those outcomes is, its measure of impact must be verified and iterated by the feelings, behaviours and culture of a business and its users.
