Ben Tollady

I'm an experience designer hailing from Oxford, living and working in Melbourne, Australia. I'm also the creative director & co-founder of UX design agency, Thirst Studios.

A qualified industrial designer, I've been applying my skills and interests in human factors, HCI and the relationship between people and products to my work in design for the web since the mid nineties. I'm passionate about developing useful, simple, easy-to-use online experiences that are delightful and a pleasure to use.

I've worked on a range of projects over the years, from online marketing and small brochure sites to large enterprise-level transactional web applications and complex systems. Some of the things I've worked on have won awards, which is nice but not important; I'm more proud that the things I put out into the world are of use and help make people's lives that little bit better.

Aside from my work at Thirst, I also co-curate a regular technology meet-up in Melbourne, Australia and occasionally teach, mentor, speak and write about design thinking and user experience design. I currently reside upon the faculty for Tractor design school as an industry mentor on their UX program.

I used to play the drums but haven't done that much lately.
