TALKS & DISCUSSIONS

Josh Payton, VP User Experience @ Huge

Ugly Ducklings - Discovering beautiful opportunities in less popular brands

"Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.” Thomas Edison said this over 100 years ago, but the sentiment remains true. The most interesting problems for user experience designers to solve today are in businesses that most would not consider “sexy.”

In his talk, Josh Payton VP User Experience Huge, will share highlights, insights and innovations from his experiences working with brands most designers would consider “low interest.” His talk will expand upon the idea that brands in these low interest categories are full of fascinating opportunities for innovation and disruption. Unlike popular brands that everyone knows, those in niche markets with esoteric problems are the ones who offer the most opportunity to innovate and make a difference. Josh will take us through a couple of case studies, where you will see first-hand the real delight of these complex brands.

As VP, User Experience at Huge, Josh oversees the creation and rapid prototyping of concepts, ecosystems and interfaces for the agency’s client base in the UK and across Europe. Having worked in Huge’s Brooklyn and Los Angeles offices, Josh moved to London three years ago, where his clients include Hublot, The Economist, Thomson Reuters, Enel, South West Trains and Credit Suisse.

A seasoned speaker, Josh has given talks at the IAB, HOW Design, Generate Conference and IxDA, and has served as a juror for the IAB Mixx Awards and The Net Awards. Josh also leads Huge School in London, the agency’s accelerated training programme for those who want to pursue a career in experience design. Prior to joining Huge, Josh was the User Experience Design Lead for the home and storefront pages at Amazon.com and a Senior Designer for Microsoft, Washington Post/Newsweek Interactive and Yahoo News.
