    Episode 15 - Exploring the Information Layer with Bram Wessel

    Episode 15 - Exploring the Information Layer with Bram Wessel

    Bram Wessel is a Principal and Founder at Factor Firm, an information architecture consultancy out of Seattle, Washington that has done work for a few brands you've probably heard of including Adobe, Amazon, Disney, Intel and Microsoft.  Bram has spent more than 20 years as a human-centered design professional, thought leader and speaker advocating for the IA/UX discipline. As if he wasn't cool enough, he also teaches the discipline to the next generation via his advanced User Experience and certificate Information Architecture classes at the School of Visual Concepts and as a guest lecturer at the University of Washington’s MCDM and MLIS programs. In this episode of the podcast, we discuss how UX designers really are modern day philosophers, how that all-important sweet spot between technical development and design expression, the information layer, has been neglected for far too long, and how Agile development is an unattainable goal. Be warned, this is a geeky one! Enjoy!

    Episode 13 - Building Design Systems and Systems for Building Designers with Ben Callahan

    Episode 13 - Building Design Systems and Systems for Building Designers with Ben Callahan

    In this conversation, I talk to Ben Callahan, Sparkbox founder and design system expert. At Sparkbox, Ben has created an amazing workplace that facilitates learning, exploring, asking questions, and pet projects. We talk about how that awesomeness came to be and what’s working well today. (Team leaders, please take notes.)  We also talk about taking time to tinker and figure yourself out—while the world seems to change right underneath your feet.

    Of course, we get into design systems, too.  We nerd out on documentation and discuss how being on the “design system team” can be a great part of company hazing >cough, cough  onboarding.

    If you are revved up to apply for Sparkbox’s apprentice program, here’s your link: https://apprentices.seesparkbox.com/

IDer interested in UX ,

Great podcast!

Sophia is a great, fun host with a strong background in the field. I love her honesty and her fun interview style. I would definitely recommend this podcast to anyone interested in UX.

Ali Kimm ,

Fun and Insightful!

I’ve only listened to episode 1 so far, but Sophia is an entertaining host! She and her guest were fun to listen to, and as a new UX designer, I learned a lot from her and her guest sharing about their several years of working in UX. I’ll definitely continue to listen!

AtlannuhMan ,

Fun and motivational!

These are conversations I can really sink my geek teeth into and the first two episodes have left me with fun, actionable stuff I can try to make myself and my work better. I look forward to listening to future episodes!!
