The Stoic Designer: Joe Knowles, Principal UX Consultant
We can’t control everything. This is a fact, but one that many people fail to realise and apply to their own work and lives. We can’t control when and why people ask us what a wireframe is, or why we’re only testing with six users, or in fact, what UX is; but crucially, we can control what our reactions to these questions are.

Throughout our careers and lives many events conspire to make us give up, to fret, be angry or sad, often to the detriment of our well-being and to the detriment of the users we ought to be advocating for every day at work.

This talk introduces stoicism as a concept and aims to put personal and professional development into that framework. Case studies from Joe's own career and life will force a rethink of common design challenges, so designers can develop into more rounded practitioners and people – not by ignoring the problems out there or solving them, but by merely rethinking how they approach them. Joe will dip into specific detail in the case studies, looking at real problems he's faced, while providing a framework that will hopefully apply far wider than UX design.
