Becky Evison – Winner 2019

Becky’s eye for design is more than just form. Her passion for ensuring that her designs meet the expectation of our clients client means that they not only look great, but function in a way that appeals to the target audience and every interaction with them is as impactful as the last. A very worthy winner of this award!

I am nominating Becky for the Eye for Design award as she is doing an amazing job with delighting our clients. Becky’s approach to design is more than just pretty mock ups. Becky considers the key audiences and ensures that her work is well thought out and takes into account everything. Data is at the forefront of everything Becky gets stuck into. She carefully reviews recordings, looks into Google Analytics, asks the right questions all to ensure she gets the best possible result(s). If ever her designs are questioned, Becky handles the situation perfectly and sometimes will challenge our clients rather than simply make changes that she doesn’t agree with or there is conflicting data for. Becky deserves to be recognised as she has ploughed away quietly in the background for so long now and consistently delivers some outstanding results. Always looking to better her design work, the development we do, Becky constantly reviews the data to ensure small tweaks are made to make the user experience even better! She spends a significant amount of time outside of work looking to improve her UX expertise. The team would be so proud of her if she won and it would be a well deserved win!

 

Bex is a very deserved winner of the ‘Eye for Design’ award. I’ve never worked with someone with such high levels of attention to detail and a meticulous approach to her work. She’s not one to blindly design based on her own opinion of what will work, she always adopts a data-first approach to her work based on how users are currently engaging with the site. You’ll often find her rummaging through heatmaps and recordings to give her a better understanding of how she can make a difference to the client’s website and, by association, their users. Her designs, off the back of this, are innovative and fresh. You won’t find a templated Bex design, it’s always meeting the needs of the user. The best example would be how she’s led the project of rebuilding the custom itinerary and example trips pages for luxury travel provider, Jacada e.g. https://www.jacadatravel.com/europe/trips/a-family-adventure-in-beautiful-croatia/
