I love UX Bristol. This year, the crew of organisers were celebrating their 10 year anniversary running it. Taking part felt meaningful and a good way to give back - considering UX Bristol is where I kick-started my professional network in Bristol back in 2018.
I thought back to the first time I went to the conference, and remembered how little I knew about working in-house. I'd never done it before and I didn't know I was soon after going to take on a full time job at OVO Group. I decided to make a talk for my former self back in 2018,
to explain what to expect and how to navigate an in-house role as a former consultant.
Format-wise, I am obsessed with poolsidefm's
nostalgic music and style. I thought that if I was going to do a pre-recorded talk, I could make the most out of people's time by bringing my talk into the poolside FM world.
I was 100% sure
I should be able to find assets online to make this happen. I was mistaken. There was no 'ready made' UI pack online.
Still obsessed with how cool this could look on screen, I resolved to work a little harder and make the assets all from scratch.
I would like to prevent future speakers from doing what I had to do, so please find all the necessary files in .zip format below. Mostly ready to go. If in doubt, check out the Medium tutorial. I hope it talks you out of trying. Jokes, you can do it!
