Over the last ten years I have worked with a variety of clients, from small start-ups to large corporate organisations. I currently work for Aviva at their digital garage in Shoreditch.I create carefully crafted interactions and the final outcome leads to objective solutions that engage audiences. My interests are in technology and creativity and how we as designers bridge the gap between user and machine. I enjoy challenging convention and working with a variety of people from different disciplines. My aim is to never stop learning and I always enjoy the process.___Talk two: Designing first-time user experiencesHow do we harness the tools around us to design and build better first time user experiences? In this talk, we'll dive deeper into experiential mapping, on-boarding and prototyping conditional experiences. How we're using Phase at Labstep to prototype conditional journeys.Speaker: Damon Macklin-----Thanks and see you on the 12th.Merry Christmas every one.
