How do you stay up to date with trends in your industry/field?
This industry is incredibly fast paced with all kinds of new products, best practices and stories being released everyday. It’s important to be aware of what’s going on so you can have a good understanding and subsequently a well fuelled intuition which assists design decision making.
To stay on top of the game I will try to only follow the absolute best companies, people and news sources out there.
What are your top five applications or programs?
Google Drive, Photoshop, Slack, SoundCloud and Twitter.
Best way to stay on top of email?
I love having inbox zero. I freak a little when the number of unread emails goes above 10. I try to respond as soon as I can. But there are other solutions I find helpful. Having real world conversations as often as possible reduces the need for email. Slack has really helped too as I can chat with the team I’m currently working with, message people directly and have general conversations where necessary.
What is your best time-saving trick?
Ordering Seamless just before I leave the studio so it’s delivered as I arrive at home, haha.
One non-tech thing you can’t live without?
My 946ml Ronnybrook farm bottle. It used to contain chocolate milk, but now serves as my bottle for drinking water out of and I love to drink lots of water.
What does your workspace look like?
ustwo New York has just moved into a brand new space in the Financial District. It’s 16 floors up and there are some stunning views from the roof terrace. There are a variety of places I like to work which include sofas, communal stand up desks or even in the kitchen.
