In his guest talk on Thursday 29th January, Duich Mackay highlighted the every changing nature of design. During a career that has seen Duich’s job title change from Graphic Designer – Web Designer – Communication Designer to User Experience Designer, he emphasised the need to detach skills from the craft of design. Now, working as a user-experience designer of mobile apps at J.P. Morgan within development teams of business analysts and developers Duich makes a significant contribution to the usability of their mobile apps. The ability to do this stresses the importance of understanding the craft of design.
