First of all – I love lamps and lighting. Second of all – I love street lamps and lighting. So when you mix that passion with an working environment that is extremely dynamic … you need a UX Department lamp (right?). The company where I’m at is a start-up. It’s easy for people to focus on the mountains of work that face them and skip UX – out of sight, out of mind. So I took this cool street lamp that I made while living in Indiana and had some vinyl lettering cut for it.
So far, it’s accomplished what I needed it to. In addition to being a way-finding mark, I hope it becomes a symbol of my efforts at work. I hope it becomes an outward reminder to others that we have customers that need us to improve the products we sell them.
