  • Posted to Who is still designing desktop first?, Nov 29, 2016

    I'm a designer at IBM working on Analytics tools, and we design desktop first. We build products for an enterprise environment and user research/testing solidified the fact that our users workflow don't involve their phones. The amount of information they need to see and the complexity of the work they do would be useless on a screen of that size.

    Though, there are other IBM products that are mobile first, but those target entirely different industries.

    Definitely a fan of the new app, some good work in there. The website not as much. The affordance that there is more beneath the fold is hard to see and the background is covered in moving images and blurs making the text hard to read.

    The video that doesn't have a required orientation is really the innovation here.

    Does it matter? They're going to remove it regardless.

    Super cool. My team has a addiction with LaCroix, so you hit that one.

  • Posted to Ask DN: How many hours a week do you work?, Sep 14, 2016

    We work about 40 hours per week when we are light on releases, probably closer to 50 when we are preparing for a release.

    IBM does "Summer Hours" where we work 9am-6pm Mon-Thurs and then we leave at 1pm on Fridays. Fridays were reserved for our presentations, file cleanup and then we leave or do some team activity. Definitely nice, but not for everyone. For the commuters, leaving the office at 6 (or 6:30) means you're not home before 7:30/8 and everything (besides restaurants) are closed.

  • Posted to IBM is gearing up to become the world’s largest and most sophisticated design company, Sep 14, 2016

    I am a part of this push! I work for IBM Design in SF. It's great to see an emphasis being placed on Design in the company, but granted it's going to take a while for the effect to propagate across all 400,000 of us. The core team has made a push for transparency by publishing our Design Thinking externally to help bring the ideas to other large companies and rationalize our design process.

  • Posted to How should a version control tool help design teams, Aug 11, 2016

    One thing I would say is that Box does version control, but it makes a new version as everytime I save the file, which happens every couple of minutes. By the end of the day, I have around 200 "versions".

    Some thought needs to put into that, Apple seems to have done a more robust job at solving it.
