About this Case Study

Understanding and solving problems well requires focus and depth of thought. Yet, unless we are mindful our lives of IMs, notifications, emails and meetings don’t afford either. Breaking habits that fragment and splinter our time takes significant effort. Focus is a muscle, not a switch; from conscious exercise comes better work and greater satisfaction.

Simon will share his experience in practicing depth as a designer. These learnings will arm you with plans for (re)discovering the benefits of focus and depth.

About the Speaker

Simon is the Lead UX Designer at Scott Logic. Their team helps discover, understand and solve complex problems across the private and public sectors.

Simon has worked in many different environments, from the very large to the very small. Without realising it, he fell prey to the distraction epidemic. His frustration from a lack of depth pushed his situation into clarity. Since then, he has been on a mission to recover depth in work and find focus.

When he is not considering philosophical issues, Simon is liable to be tinkering around with synthesisers in efforts to create epic drones, or playing with his chihuahua in the park.
