Gerry Gaffney runs a small UX consultancy in Melbourne, called Information and Design. He set up the company 25 years ago, originally to focus on technical communication.
He’s been involved in user-centred design for more years than you can count on two hands.
He’s lectured at under-grad and post-grad level, presented at a wide range of conferences around the world, but mostly been a hands-on consultant at a variety of organisations, from banks and telcos to startups and government agencies.
He’s been running the User Experience podcast at uxpod.com since 2006.
For 10 years he was an active volunteer at UPA and UXPA, including 2 years as Managing Editor of their User Experience magazine and a 3-year stint as Director of Publications.
He’s co-author (with Caroline Jarrett) of “Forms That Work: Designing Web Forms for Usability” and he still maintains an unhealthy obsession with forms and what they say about an organisation.
