Brave UX with… Brendan Jarvis
We know the design community is constantly seeking out new ideas, looking for ways to learn, hear from our peers and advance our thinking.
Listening to podcasts is one of the easiest and most accessible ways to do all of the above and the DA team is hooked!
One of our recent binges is from DA Friend Brendan Jarvis at the Space InBetween
From making to shaping experiences
Brendan Lives and breathes UX and bravery, “after a decade of designing and building digital experiences, an uncomfortable but important question came up. Were we really living up to our original purpose, to help companies create better relationships with people through technology? The short answer was not really. When we looked honestly at our practice, we were more user-scented than user-centred. That’s not to say we weren’t good at what we did, we definitely were. It’s just that the user wasn’t always a tangible part of the process.”
In response Brendan boldly redesigned his business “moving away from delivering end-to-end solutions – to focus on making it easier for product teams and human-centred design leaders to discover the insights that flow from making their users real.” He built New Zealand’s first world-class UX lab. “A place of possibility and exploration where, through participatory usability testing, UX research and product innovation programmes, we’re able to bring teams and users together, to shape better experiences.”
Brendan’s podcast Brave UX is a series of peer-to-peer knowledge share conversations which unpack the stories, learnings, and expert advice of world-class UX, design and product management professionals so you too can redefine your offer and centre the needs of your audience. “Brendan Jarvis is on a mission to help you to create better products.”
Each episode provides designers lessons on leadership, confidence, collaboration, the social and political issues shaping our practice—all with a UX lens.
