Hi, I’m Cennydd. Yes, it’s Welsh.
Over a fifteen-year career, I’ve written a popular book Undercover User Experience Design, been a design manager at Twitter, and helped to pioneer the British experience design scene. I’m now an independent design consultant, working with clients like the BBC, Samsung, WWF, Cisco, and Ford.
My focus today is the ethics of emerging technology. My thoughts on the topic have been quoted in The Guardian, Ars Technica, The Daily Telegraph, Süddeutsche Zeitung, and Forbes; my new book Future Ethics will be published in mid-2018.
I’m an invited speaker at conferences and companies worldwide and also run training workshops on visual design, motion design and prototyping for a range of clients. I’ve written for a variety of print and web publications, been a columnist for A List Apart, and edited the book Front-end Style Guides.
I hold an MSc in Information Technology from The University of Nottingham, and now live in London with my wife Anna and cat Beemo. I spend my spare time playing chess, cooking, and enjoying cricket, golf, and football.
This week, I’m writing Chapter 7 ‘Software is Heating the World’ of Future Ethics.
