Bonnie Glasgow, Scotland.
I’ve always got a buzz out of trying to understand people, and sharing their insights with others. . I pivoted from working in the music industry for several years - loved being around creatives, and now loving getting to get creative myself ✨✨
In the last few years I have realised how important it is to take care of yourself, and in so, invest in yourself. Take time to learn, as I love to learn, and I now know that is what gives me joy. I’m also lucky to pick a job, and now more pick a career where I am in a constant state of learning.
Accessible Design Bootcamp. I love the note that we all work to our own bias, and as designers, we create with what we know. This is something I know I need to work on and wonder “who am I excluding?”. I feel this quote sums it up best.
“Inclusion is imperfect and requires humility. It’s an opportunity to be curious and approach challenges with a desire to learn. It teaches us new ways to adapt our solutions to what people need.” - Kat Holmes
Super relaxed, and you can input as much as your feel. Which makes it more inclusive for individuals who would prefer to absorb than input. I always felt energised after each class 💞
Memorisely’s use of Notion as onboarding and hub for the class resources and knowledge. I love Notion, and I learned new ways to utilise its capabilities through this class too.
It’s a vast land/seascape. So it is hard to not get overwhelmed. My main thought is no-one is an expert, so enjoy absorbing what you can. Keep design simple and inject some love into what you make and put out.
Wrap up work around 5pm, walk my puppy Luna 🌙 to fill my lungs and mind with some fresh chilly air to help my switch from work to class. Plus, to move! Otherwise I’d be glued to my chair and desk at home all day as I now work remote.
Facing out the window so I can get my twitching on!
Build your own persona tool by hubspot.
I love the playful use of illustrations, animation and sound effects for added injection of love.
Interactive assistant by Locomotive.
Allows more of a chatbot conversion flow but through a desktop UI. Feels like you are talking to someone else (write in this way)
For more focus work like design thinking, or synthesising data I prefer deep work vibes like:
But other times I just want to feel relaxed and share some good vibes!
