Hey, I'm Iain McConchie*.
As Design Manager for the Interactive Experiences team at Netflix we were challenged to continually experiment with new ways to push the expectations and capabilities of streaming entertainment. How can we get Netflix members to lean in and interact with content in unique, engaging and meaningful ways? At Headspace, where I was VP of Product Design, I led Brand, Research and Product Design teams. As a cross-functional partner and multi-disciplinary leader I ensured Design delivered on our mission is to "improve the health and happiness of the world" by aligning Human Centered Design process with practical business outcomes.
Prior to that I was the Head of Design at the digital services agency The App Business (now Kin+Carta) and along with founding and building the design capability from the ground up I was fortunate enough to work with a variety of companies and brands including Headspace (one of our original clients back in 2012), Tesco, The Met Office, McLaren F1, Go-Ahead, VISA and TfL to name but a few. And if you go a little further back you'll find MTV and Disney on my resumé where I worked on tons of fun interactive and entertainment experiences.
I learn from, and are inspired by, the Design community so it's been a privilege to speak at a number of events such as the Design X Leadership Summit, Awwwards London & IxDA London. You can also here me speak on the Adobe Wireframe and Bureau Briefing design podcasts.
