Thinking and Writing

Hello world!

If you were to search the interwebs for my name you would find numerous half finished attempts by me to start a blog. Most of them suffered from my lack of inspiration for anything interesting to write about and chronic laziness, this new blog will hopefully be different! Back in July I started a freelance contract at the British Film Institute to help them redevelop their website. We started with ambitious plans to complete a complicated design and build in 9 months while implementing huge sections of new content. We started out from the beginning with a user centred design focus and also decided to introduce Agile into the way we work. Combining the two approaches has been a challenge but I think we've made some great progress on this and I wanted to share some of the things that worked (and didn't work) with the wider world. The blog might be slightly disjointed as I tend to write about things that are most relevant to me at the time but I'll try and recap on as much as I can. If there's anything you'd like me to write about or you have any questions feel free to drop me a line.
