about-matt-speaking AIGA event - how to break into Design

Speaking with Will Chau, Russell Toynes, Jennette Lemley, and Oen Hammonds at AIGA event “Tips for Getting your First Design Job”

Who is Matt?

I am a Design Lead at IBM. My day-to-day work is guiding / motivating a small team of designers on IBM Bluemix, and help them navigate through a competitive Cloud industry and a huge mega corp as it seeks to transform itself. Before IBM, I worked at two startups, two agencies, one small company and one giant company (but less giant than Big Blue). All of this experience has given me the opportunity to work with super talented people and amazing clients such as AT&T, Alcatel-Lucent, Symantec, and Royal Bank of Canada.

What is this site all about?

Once a week during the school year, I teach a course at Austin Community College (ACC) on either Foundations in User Experience or UX Portfolio.This site is my side hustle. I created this site to act as a bookmark for my conversations on design and education that come out of my interactions with my colleagues and students. The goal is to perpetuate a culture of sharing and growth in a growing community.
