Social VR with VeeR — How to land job as a Product Designer.

Sharing is caring🐝! A curated collection of this week’s most exciting stuff. Kickback and enjoy the things the Humblebee Team usually only share with each other. I’ll try to get this out once a week, but don’t quote me on that🖖🏽.

React in Battlefield! — React Europe 2018

Highlights from the React Europe 2018 Conference — Get a feel for the major themes that were covered. Videos of the talk are now available on Youtube.

And this is a great summery for both designer and developers.

Awesome Talks

A list of tech talks to watch that is constantly updated by the community and is a great way to find an interesting talk to watch during your daily morning commute.

What is conversation design?

Conversation design is a design language based on human conversation, similar to how design system is a design language. Lots of businesses are looking at how to incubate voice into there product. It’s good to have some inspiration on how companies like Gooogle and IBM works with conversation design.

Social VR with VeeR

An app we love is VEER. This could well be the future of social video. VeeR connects you instantly to an active community of VR video creators and audience all over the world. This is quite fun and addicted experience. VeeR is now available on all VR platforms and also an App for iPhone and Android.

How to land job as a Product Designer

Maybe this is a challenge for others across Sweden, it’s certainly critical for us at Humblebee. We always look for business-minded digital designers who are not just focused on the visuals or artistic deliveries. We meet and interview highly talented designers every day that are great at what they do, but the landscape is changing and the designer role has to change with it. Designers must take a more strategic, business minded mindset to secure their future roles.

For us a product designer oversees product vision from a high level… how does this feature or function make sense relating to where the company want to be in 6 weeks, 6 months or 6 years; how does styling of this component impact how the user flows through this function.

I could go on writing about this topic for weeks!! I won’t subject you to that torture, but to help you understand and boost up your career and turn you into the best Product Designer you can possibly be, I recommend this best-selling book on Amazon Called Solving Product Design Exercises. It’s packed with expert advice on how to practice the mindset of the successful, modern Product Designer. Enjoy!

How was that? Share your love and thoughts with me. See you next week with more interesting stuff 🙌.
