Hi, I’m Cennydd. Yes, it’s Welsh.
Over a fifteen-year career, I’ve written a popular book Undercover User Experience Design, headed up the London design team at Twitter, and helped to pioneer the British experience design scene. I’m now an independent design consultant, and have worked with clients including the BBC, Samsung, WWF, 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 worldwide and was the closing keynote speaker at the 2011 Information Architecture Summit. I also run training workshops and talks on visual design, motion design and prototyping, and ethics, for clients including The Financial Times, Orange, Farfetch, and Capital One. 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. I’m a frequent away supporter of Cardiff City FC and the Wales national football team.
