Productive Company, with very fun office culture
Service Designer (Former Employee) – Harwell, Oxfordshire – 16 October 2017
A Typical Day at work:
Every day was very different; days included participating in design sprints understanding SME's ideas and making them pitch ready for investment. Communicating what we do at the Catapult better through infographics, building Wireframes for applications that solved a users pain by using satellite data. Facilitating workshops and creating lesson plans to educate children on how satellites impact their lives, and much much more...
What I learned:
Design Strategy and how to use it to get worthwhile answers from users.
Pitching and Public Speaking how to get a complete business idea out in as little as a 3 minute pitch.
Fun, Dynamic, Open Planned, Matrix Structure
Hardest Part of the Job:
Dealing with very tight deadlines, and sometimes very undefined briefs.
Most enjoyable part of the job:
Hearing how much of a difference, the inforgraphics have made to the understanding of complicated satellites.
Creating applications that solve real world issues for users.
Exciting Industry, very autonomous
A lot of undefined work, very disorganised
