Hi, I'm Alice
Welcome to my world
A New Horizon
Over the last three years I have successfully run a branding and illustration business, and I am now transitioning back into the workforce - to bring my skills and experience to a company that is changing how we interact with the world.
A section within "The Most Important Design Jobs Of The Future" by Fast Company describes the position made for me:
Nominated by Bill Buxton, principal researcher, Microsoft Research
Design has typically been preoccupied with creating new instruments. However, however wonderful any one of those instruments might be, the true potential is only realized when they play well together—essentially as one. [...] It is the Conductor who carries the responsibility for the design of those relationships and ensuring that their collective value significantly exceeds the sum of their individual values, and their cumulative complexity is significantly less than the sum of their individual complexities.
Today, I see myself as an account or project manager: holding the big picture while making all elements & relationships of a project run smoothly, adapting to changes as they hit, and building new systems if necessary.
