Role: UX Designer // Company: Microsoft // Software: Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign…
I gained my first real insights into User Experience while at Microsoft in 2008 – 10. There I was part of the Global User Experience Team, with members in Dublin/ London/ Tokyo/ Seattle/ San Francisco and Hawaii.
One of the projects I worked on with the UX team was the MSN ‘Human interface Guide’,
The objective of the HIG project was to improve the overall experience and the consistency of experience across the MSN platform, and to create and define standards and guidelines that supported the new brand and identity for the network. As part of the HIG “Brand and Foundation” team and the areas I work on included: Themes, Sponsorship, Typography, Colour, Photography and Advertising.
