User experience resolutions – 2015

by Gemma Maidment on 23 December 2014

Having studied Industrial Design at Loughborough University, my first job was at TomTom in Amsterdam. Working in the UX department, I was involved in designing a range of in-car navigation interfaces and the digital eco-systems around them, as well as out-of-the-box and in-store TomTom experiences.

I joined Webcredible 6 months ago as a UX Consultant, and have already been involved in a handful of fast-paced projects for clients like Instant Offices and KPMG.

Joining Webcredible has been a whirlwind, snowballing from initial introductions and bottomless cups of coffee to full on client work. All in a matter of weeks.

The real fun began almost immediately. I joined a project team already knee deep in user requirements and usability testing – I  was quickly put to good use helping out with conceptual wireframing. The project finished 6 weeks later, and there was already another client waiting. The pace here at Webcredible is fast, and even after getting up to speed it hasn’t slackened 2 months in.

The vibe in the office is relaxed and light-hearted (other than when people are fighting over office snacks!), and hot desking has been a great way to get to know the other ‘Webcredibles’. The variety of projects we work on means there is always a new experience around the corner.

My top tips for new joiners at Webcredible:

  • If you want a desk – get in early!
  • There is a ‘correct’ way to tear off a Post-It. Alex Lillo will happily teach you all about it
  • Be ready to drink a lot of coffee in your first week
  • Hang on to your mouse like it’s your best friend – they tend to disappear…
