Done is just the beginning

Christian Baker VP Design & User Experience Local Measure

Those of us that started out designing for print remember the feeling of relief when a job we had been working on for weeks or months came back from the printer. It was the sign that we could call that job done, celebrate our hard work and move onto the next thing. Now, as many of us have shifted to in-house product teams, the launch of a feature is just the beginning of endless iterations. It can be hard to get that feeling of closure. Teams can suffer from burnout or get stuck in a feature factory.

In this talk I want to explore some techniques teams and individuals can use to avoid or reduce the negative effects of the way we build products.

Christian Baker

For the last five years, Christian has been leading design at Local Measure, a SaaS startup providing tools to help the hotel and tourism industries create better guest experiences. Before that, he was part of a small team that created and launched Balmain Private, an online investment product that was the first of its kind.

Working on small teams and start ups over his career has meant learning and practicing skills across multiple disciplines in design, engineering, product management and marketing.
