Ask A UX’er: Expert Q&A Session

Free

What is life like as a top UX Designer? What do Senior UX Directors look for in new recruits? How does it feel to be a junior UX’er making your tentative first steps in a strange new industry?

In this series of talks, we interview a wide range of Experience Design professionals from across the industry, talking about their journey, day-to-day working lives, key trends and advice for others who want to follow suit.

Joseph is a lead Product Designer at The Economist, growing a team of UX, Research, and Content Design practitioners, and advocating for the customer’s voice within the organisation. Outside of publishing, Joseph has worked in the gaming sector, and in eCommerce. Prior to his UX career, Joseph was an operatic tenor, singing across Europe, and undertaking his Masters degree at the Royal Academy of Music. His biggest claim to fame is his annual TV outing in the Champions League theme tune, for which he was paid £115.

From its inception in 1843, The Economist continues to provide bold ideas, a global perspective and rigorous analysis of world affairs. A beautifully curated library of text and audio content featured in weekly publications informs an engaged, global audience. According to the group’s most recent Worldwide Brand Report, average print and digital circulation per issue hits 1.65million

The Economist has undergone obvious transformation over the last 5 years. After 175 years of publishing, it is only relatively recently that the need for a cohesive customer experience (online and offline) to attract and retain subscribers has been pushed to the forefront.

We look forward to discussing how the publication confronts the digital revolution and Joey’s journey to Lead Product Designer.
