Jane: Design Director

Jane brings with her 18 years’ experience working at the BBC where she has been involved in its digital transformation, including being part of the teams that launched BBC iPlayer, early mobile web services for BBC News and Sport, leading design work for the YouView set-top box electronic programme guide, and leading the team that produces award-winning children’s apps like CBeebies Playtime and Storytime.

She has established and grown specialist UX discipline teams in Design Research, UX Writing and UX Architecture, and used design thinking to transform how programme makers can use digital platforms to create more impact for their audiences.

Most recently she has been working with colleagues to develop ethical design practices, looking at measures of impact which are related less on attention and more on human values. Jane believes that design can have a huge impact: not just on people’s motivation to consume stuff, but on their lives.
