Richard Banks
PRINCIPAL DESIGN MANAGER
.

I’m working primarily with Abigail Sellen and Richard Harper on the design of new user experiences for people’s everyday lives. With others in this interdisciplinary team we’re focussed on the reality of life. It’s complex, frantic and unique to each individual and family, and traditional software and technology solutions don’t usually fit smoothly into it. We’re looking at ways in which technology can fit into the complexities of life, rather then insisting on the reverse.

In addition to project work I maintain a blog about technology trends. This primarily contains pointers and extracts from articles about new technologies and the ways in which people are using them.

For more details see my personal webpage, and particularly this About Me page.
