Last week was UXBristol’s 10th birthday 🎉
The five talks on Friday morning were all excellent and well worth watching, and the great news is they’re available for free over on YouTube.
Or you can jump directly to the beginning of each 30 minute talk:
- Sam Villis – Storytelling
Sam read ‘The Tiger Who Came To Tea’ to us live, using it to show us how we can use the narrative arc to tell the story of our project. Sam has also written a medium post about running a storytelling workshop at GovCamp.

- Candi Williams – Great, they can find it. But can they understand it?
Candi talked us through some great ways we can test if people understand our content.

- Rita Cervetto – Service Design in Tech
Retro style presentation covering the history, purpose and value of service design, what to expect if you’re thinking of being a service designer in the tech world, and a great use of video to include contributions from Rita’s industry colleagues.

- Joe Knowles – The Stoic Designer
A very honest and personal story from Joe and how a book (The Daily Stoic Journal) from Ben (Joe’s brother) helped unlock the virtues of stoicism. Plus some practical advice on self care.
Including a quote from Joe in the Q&A: “But stoicism isn’t like getting ripped. You don’t do it and go to the beach and show it off. It’s an ongoing practice.”

- Jon Fukuda – ‘Design-Integration’: Creating a Design-Integrated Business to Build Digital Products that Win and 6 Best Practices to Get You There
Jon talked us through his company’s recent research findings on integrating design into organisations. Who does it well? What are the barriers, and what steps can we take right now?

A big thank you to the speakers, volunteers and sponsors. And congratulations and thank you to Stu, James and Dave for another fantastic event.
