The perfect day of doodles, direction and development with Eva-Lotta

We ran our ‘Sketching for Sketchnoting and Visual Thinking‘  workshop this week and it really was a great success. Not only was Eva-Lotta on great form; guiding us through the day with multiple hands on exercises, coaching us through different techniques and styles and helping us to develop our own unique style of sketch-noting. But the calibre of attendees was also outstanding; comprising a mix of UX consultants, project managers, UI teacher and Creative director, everyone got stuck in and laughed their way through the day, fundamentally taking away a lot from the day in terms of sketching ability and when to use sketching in your day to day.

Everyone had different motives for attending the course though the resounding denominator was sketching as a form of communication; Whether it be to  facilitate scrum meetings or in house workshops, to communicate with clients and key stakeholders, for storyboarding and exploring ideas quickly before digitally refining them etc.

Image source As you are probably aware, several changes to IR35 legislation came into effect in April this year (2021) that impacted the private and public sectors.

Maybe this is your first UX interview ever, or you haven’t interviewed in a few years and you want to get a better idea of what to expect…

If you want the best UXers then provide the best CX (Customer Experience) within your hiring process, else you risk ending up with who’s leftover rather than the best person for the job. Not to mention damaging your brand presence within the market. UX as we all know, has boomed and with that boom has […]

As an ex-freelance art director, that moved into freelance (and permanent) creative recruitment, I like to think I have a good understanding of how ad agencies, design agencies and production houses recruit for creative freelance positions, but (unfortunately) I made many mistakes along the way. Based on my experience both as a freelance creative and […]
