#DesignInTech Report 2017

Design isn’t just about beauty; it’s about market relevance and meaningful results.

For more design thinking, take a look at the excellent Design in Tech Report 2017 by John Maeda, Global Head of Computational Design and Inclusion at Automattic.

PS: See slide 28 to find out why writing is as important as coding, if you want to create a great user experience.


Thank you to all who read our posts in 2014

The WordPress.com stats monkeys have kindly prepared another annual report for this blog. It shows we had 4,500 views in 2014, more than double our views in 2013. Thank you to everyone who took the time to read, share and, in some cases, comment.

Although we focused on local food and drink in 2014, we also wrote about East Anglia’s thriving digital technology, engineering and bio-science communities. We look forward to bringing you more stories like this in 2015. If you are organising any special events for these sectors, please let me know.

We’re blogging for charity

We are using our blogs to raise awareness of an excellent local charity called Nelson’s Journey. If you enjoyed this post, please donate £1 (or more if you can spare it) to Nelson’s Journey today. Thank you.

Experiments in sound – discovering the world of #voiceovers with @Voice123 and @voicesdotcom

Here is my first recorded blog (a sound blog – Slog?) – it’s just 5’47” ‘short’ – hope you enjoy – all friendly feedback welcomed.

To post this podcast, I had to open a Soundcloud account – another new learning experience (I could have bought more space on WordPress but my aim is to keep costs down).

Follow these links to view my profiles on Voice123 and Voicesdotcom and to hear my two test demo recordings (rough cuts).

Thank you for listening
