Hi, I’m Emma.
I’m the web whisperer.
I help product and service teams create navigation design solutions.
So to kick things off, here’s the profile a lovely person called Dan wrote about me for a talk I did last week (March 2022).
The highlights I always give when I’m talking about my career, in bite-sized chunks…
I don’t have a degree or any formal qualifications, I’m completely self-taught
This year is my 25th year in my career (yes, I feel very old writing that)
Started working in tech support for ICL, diagnosing and fixing computer problems over the phone
Moved into digital design field in 2004 when I commissioned a bespoke CMS and built a site from the ground up for the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA)
Roles I’ve done include, project, change and account management, business analysis, information architecture, user experience design and taxonomist
I’ve been a freelance / contractor for approx. 15 years of my career (I make a terrible permanent employee)
Benchmarking & testing
Metadata / controlled vocabulary design
Federated ecosystem design
Mobile application & game design
I’m channeling a bit of an MVP attitude at the mo, as I’m juggling a lot of things. This is an MVP list of the organisations I’ve worked for in the last 15 years.
I’ll be adding more in the way of case studies of the work I’ve done, when I’ve had a spare 10 minutes to write them 🤦🏼♀️.
