I recently had to recruit for a ‘Designer’. I knew what I wanted getting done but it was still confusing what label do I give the role. It is so convolutedΒ nowadays with all the nuances of design. Managing expectations has become a nightmare when it comes to people who are not into that digital thing. The moment I utter the word ‘design’ and people imagine colours coming alive, unicorns running through the scree and overall fairy tale lands being built in a digital format. To help some other peers in a similar situation here is a quick guide to who…

The Big Data talk just never ends. I am going to geek out a bit with this post. It does not necessarily follow my usual light hearten style πŸ™‚ However, I like to look at future technologies that are interesting and sometimes a little bit controversial. And Bitcoin (blockchain respectively) is the sole synonym of controversy itself. It was loved, hated, feared, disputed but never ignored.

This is how I would hire someone looking for a job in Digital. And, no, I will not ask you where do you see yourself in 5 years or what your 72 weaknesses are. I hope some of the below helps you in your search. I would probably ask you to complete a test even before you come in. This is to determine if you do have the skills on your CV. I ask my devs to complete a codility test and in some cases, I ask the marketing side of the team to complete a test case on the…

Living in London, is like you live in digital central. There is no better place in Europe toΒ snapchat away and gram your way through the day, than London. I have always worked in digital, it just happened when I graduated and it was just my thing. Moving to London was like coming to the source code of online, it all happens here first. You get to play with new tech, you get to experience true adoption and in many casesΒ you get to witness the actualΒ ‘creation’ or be a part of it. I love being a part of this, and I…
