I gave this presentation at the STFC in Harwell and at ARUP in London as part of the Engineering Development Trust’s ‘Future Industry Leaders Award’ competition. Although I didn’t win, I was offered a job as a result, which makes me feel better about not winning. This presentation focuses on how to design user experiences (UX) for highly technical websites, and why it’s important to do so.
As an addendum: since my time at Sharp, the LED website has actually been redesigned again (this time for purely political reasons). The new design actually contains a few elements from my original prototype (such as the business-card distributor badges), that weren’t in Electric Studio’s redesign, however, the implementation is a bit rough around the edges (probably more so than my prototype).
