This podcast is episode 5 of 7 recorded at EuroIA 2017

IA, IxD, SEO – all of these and more come under the canopy of UX. “I don’t think any of us can truly call ourselves UX designers, although that’s a very convenient title” said Eric Reiss towards the beginning of our conversation. The environment we work in and the way in which we communicate what we do creates a constant struggle. We need to survive being UX-ers. Read More

#FBTB17 interview with @monteiro

This podcast is episode 2 of 5 recorded at From Business To Buttons 2017

We locked Mike Monteiro in a room at From Business To Buttons and had a chat. So, do you want to talk about design or politics? That was the question Mike posed at the start of his presentation earlier in the day. So we asked Mike the same. Suffice to say, we get into politics, ethics, and very much into how all of that is part of the fabric of design.
