This is my 2016 designer logbook. Last year, I embarked on an exciting journey into the world of designing digital experiences within the financial sector. So far, it has been a thrilling adventure that opened up new career opportunities for me in the Fin-Tech industry.
A UX Designer joining a “Front-End” conference is like a motorbike rider joining a gathering of bike riders. Both the motorcyclist and the cyclist wish to drive a handy and fancy vehicle which is also safe during the bends and stable when braking. What I bring home from the front-end conference in 2016 in Zurich is a strong feeling that developers, designers, project managers and unicorns chase each other in order to design and implement a smooth and frictionless user experience.
A few days ago I stumbled on a Luke Wroblewski’s infographic (Fig 1.1) showing mobile phones usage evolution. The graph shows that the main device feature (voice calls) is almost unused. In fact, the title of his post was “When will we stop calling them phones?”
What happened at the UX Camp 2016 Zurich, what I learned, what I discovered and all my takeovers. Attending the Zurich UX Camp is always a great experience. Because the people that attend are so inspired and excited to be part of the event. Because the organisation is able to make you feel comfortable within a warm context. Because the venue is awesome and food is great!
