Interview with Mark Brenchley
What were you doing before Academy Xi?
I was taking on all sorts of work, teaching myself skills as I went. From 3D designing chandeliers and kitchens, to copywriting, to designing motion graphics for startups and working as a Journalist for The Australian
What are you doing now?
I am working as a Junior Consultant for M&C Saatchi’s innovation design consultancy, Tricky Jigsaw. I’m assisting in the definition, design, and delivery of our client’s CX and Service Design strategy. My work includes product strategy, UX Design and facilitating the alignment of teams.
What would you say to someone considering taking the UX: Transform course?
A lot! But most of all, I recommend putting the work in, listening, and pushing yourself to be better in all aspects of UX. It’s not an easy ride, but nothing worth doing ever is.
