I wrote a short piece about branding at the Olympics, and how the work really starts for sponsors and sports organisations AFTER the games.

I think it's vital, but only once things have settled and you have a clear MVP. From that stage on tests and staging environments are crucial to scaling a product without all that hard work being killed by a poor UX

It is. And I have gotten to appreciate it more and more over the years. Early on it is easy to dismiss design as costly and cumbersome (to get right), but they you realize how integral it is to success as a business.

Absolutely, and I appreciate the value of good design each day. But I'm interested to read about the problems facing design in these two articles.

It's easy enough to use Keynote to show something, and I prefer that over in-browser mockups, but sketches and working prototypes are the best though. So long as the audience has an imagination, and you need to prime them them for that.

I don't think age is a disadvantage in the future of work. I think job at risk are based on whether they can be automated (think telemarketing, accountancy, etc.). Experience is always an asset, if combined with staying current on technology.

I feel that career changes are harder after a certain age, so the over 40s might be looking at the constant changes in work and struggling to fit in. But it's very clear now that you need to keep learning as you grow older.
