I had a fun and inspiring chat with UX firm founder Adam Faulkner in Sydney, Australia. Adam shared his thoughts on how he keeps his team morale up through staging virtual community events and “Quarantini” online gatherings. He also talked about how the terminology “social distancing” sent the wrong message to the public but that “physical distancing while staying socially connected” was a more positive way to express it.
Adam has been working in technology and telecommunications since 2000, and has worked at Sony and Blackberry. He founded UX research and design agency blueegg 8 years ago, is an instructor at General Assembly, and currently runs the Enterprise UX Meetup in Sydney.
