I'm Claire Rowland, a London-based independent UX and product consultant specialising in the internet of things (IoT).
I've been working in web/mobile/cross-platform software UX since 1997, and with connected products since 2010. I'm especially interested in taking products from an early adopter user base to the mass market, and in technologies that support everyday activities. I have particular experience with connected home technology, such as energy monitoring, heating/cooling, lighting and security and automation.
I'm the lead author of Designing Connected Products: UX design for the internet of things, published in 2015 by O'Reilly.
I'm available during 2016 for independent consulting projects.
Designing Connected Products
This book, published in 2015 provides experienced UX designers and technologists with a clear and practical roadmap for approaching consumer product strategy and design in the novel market of UX for the internet of things.
By drawing on the best of current design practice and academic research, Designing Connected Products delivers sound advice for working with cross-device interactions and complex ecosystems inherent in IoT technology.
