Hi, I’m Brian Dys — a photographer from the inside looking out · a composer entangled in electronic music · a UX designer · a spouse, a parent, & everything in between.
Recently, I’ve been drafting a Project Communications Framework that will guide the design team in handling design projects—from alignments to presenting our works. Committing to a timeframe is one important aspect and here’s a visualization of it.
In November of 2009, Chikka was bought by Smart. I was only a year young in the company. Changes were for the better. Progress is always good.
During the latter part of 2014, Chikka began merging under Voyager Innovations. Our little pail of water world was suddenly thrown into a pool. Work became more challenging. Stepping up became a necessity for survival. Changes were for the better. Progress is always good.
On this day of October 2018, the pool is overflown. KKR and Tencent invest in Voyager Innovations. The future is brighter than ever. The now, more exciting with challenges.
This is a watershed moment not only for Voyager Innovations but also for the Philippines. With this investment by KKR and Tencent, we will trigger an inflection point in digital adoption and financial inclusion in the country. Orlando B. Vea, President and CEO of Voyager Innovations
Throughout my career, I’ve met and worked with a class of talented people in the tech industry. Mentors and coaches have imparted invaluable lessons that are ingrained in my leadership values.
Changes are for the better. Progress is always good.
Do you see web design laying down the curb, breathing its last breath?
It’s true that the term “web design” is rarely heard in job postings and in the industry simply because every thing connected to it has moved on.
Primarily the technology in which we access the web. It has gone from the big bulky desktop computer to mobile phones to other things that are connected to the internet.
Along with the capabilities of these technologies are the enablement of people to accomplish tasks using our mobile and wearable devices.
The designers aren’t designing solely for websites anymore but in a bigger picture, for experiences.
In this regard that business owners could lean more towards getting their presence online using a “10-dollar template” than being heavy on their brand using a custom design. Hey, they could even do it themselves through Wix or Squarespace.
As a designer, don’t go convincing people that a custom design is better than templated design. Go with the flow of progress. Think “UX design”.
