Love your job (a picture is worth a thousand words)
I can’t quite figure out why, but I really like this photo I took in our office earlier this week. I just think it’s such a great summary of everything I love about doing user experience work.
I spent the afternoon sitting on the floor, surrounded by sticky notes, drawing out insights that are based on data we collected from in-person usability testing and customer interviews. And I got to do it while listening to stuff like this.
I guess I’m just really grateful that we get to be in the business of understanding human behavior, and using those insights to make things that people care about. We might not always succeed, but the journey sure is gratifying.
Happy Friday, everyone.
(If you’re wondering, those are Sennheiser HD 380 headphones. Highly recommended.)
