Joanna Peel 'My journey from full-time employment to a Masters course, to my first UX role'

Did you know, we launched the Doing Design Festival on January 29 2021? Hello and welcome to another episode of Getting Started in Design, I am your host Gerry Scullion, service designer and educator and founder of This is HCD Network and CEO of This is Doing. This podcast is focussed on shining a light on the tricky stages between education and employment and also covers moving careers into Design. We realise it’s not a simple career to break into, and I myself can totally relate to this, and often reflect back on the time (a long time ago when I struggled for a few years to catch a break). Hopefully, this podcast goes some way towards helping you land your job in your chosen area of Design. Today on the show we have Joanna Peel, a recent graduate in the area of interaction design in Ireland. We speak about the process that Joanna recently went through post leaving her masters, what she found to be helpful and how she managed to land not one, but two jobs - which is no mean feat in the current world that we find ourselves in. Let’s jump into the episode. https://www.linkedin.com/in/joannapeel/?locale=en_US More from This is HCD https://linktr.ee/thisishcd Join our Slack community / https://www.thisishcd.com/community/join/ Join our newsletter / https://www.thisishcd.com/community/join-the-hcd-newsletter Become a Premium Member: https://thisishcdnetwork.supercast.tech See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Dr. Lucretia Berry 'Many Hues. One Humanity.'

Did you know, we launched the Doing Design Festival on January 29 2021? Hello and welcome to another episode of Bringing Design Closer. My name is Gerry Scullion, and I’m a service designer, and founder of This is HCD and CEO of This is Doing - we provide live online design and innovation classes, providing training for service designers, design researchers, product managers, user experience designers, content designers and much more. Today on the show, we have Dr Lucretia Berry, Co-Founder of Brownicity, an organisation based in the US that is dedicated to advocacy and education and support for racial healing and antiracism. I absolutely adored their hero statement on their website when I first saw it, it says ‘many hues, one humanity’ so was extremely excited to finally get to speak with Lucretia. We speak about racism in-depth, where it comes from, what privilege looks like, and also discuss why African American children are 5 x more likely to drown in US swimming pools. A fact that blows my mind. Lucretia was one of my favourite guests on This is HCD, and special thanks to Pinar Guvenc, who was on the show recently who connected us to each other. It’s a big topic, so let’s get into it... https://www.linkedin.com/in/lucretia-berry-b766005b/ https://www.instagram.com/lucretiaberry/?hl=en https://brownicity.com/ Learn with Brownicty - https://brownicity.com/learn/ More from This is HCD https://linktr.ee/thisishcd Join our Slack community / https://www.thisishcd.com/community/join/ Join our newsletter / https://www.thisishcd.com/community/join-the-hcd-newsletter Become a Premium Member: https://thisishcdnetwork.supercast.tech See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Nick Evanson 'Big Data growth is not sustainable'

By 2035, it is estimated that there will be more than 2,000 zettabytes of data produced globally. Based on current storage pricing, 2,000 zettabytes would cost $58 trillion to store. The global economy is currently worth about $80 trillion. The pace and quantity of data production is not even remotely sustainable. One zettabyte—just one zettabyte—would require 20 trillion trees worth of paper to print out. There are about three trillion trees left on this planet. The digital world is undergoing a Big Bang of data and 90% of it is useless because we have a culture that prizes production and collection over-analysis and insight. Nick talks about how we might address the Big Data tsunami.
