Feeding the Growth Culture

Experience designer, Alan Colville has just joined our collective. He’s an experienced user centred design specialist who previously designed the interface for Telewest’s video on demand and personal recorder services — no mean feat given the constraints of Web TV so we’re all happy to be working with him. Please head over to Grow and commiserate with him if you wish.

In the next few days he’s going to be publishing some great insights into usability and experience design which I’ve been lucky enough to have a sneak peek at. Keep an eye on the Grow feed if you’d like some practical insights into the user centred design.

I’ve added a Feedburner feed for anyone masochistic enough to subscribe to my special fried spam. It’s hand coded and seems to be valid, but feel free to let me know if you get any problems.

This is my lo–fi intermin solution. Neat, eh? Apart from sating my natural urge to publish and venting a little verbosity, there’s something appealing about not having to field comment spam, too. We’re old school, baby!
