Dan Ramsden is Creative director for User experience architecture and UX Writing at the BBC. He leads a team of information architects who are committed to making the BBC’s tools, content and experiences more meaningful and connected. He’s also helping to establish the UX Writing discipline in BBC UX&D. Both roles give him plenty of opportunities for understanding and improving how teams work, getting the most from specialist disciplines and working with people who inform and inspire his own practice every day. Specialist disciplines at the BBC are sometimes embedded into product teams while others works on platform-level capabilities and insights. Dan concentrates on making sure their efforts are coherent, connected, efficient and resilient. He is based in Salford, at MediaCity UK. Dan likes jokes, magic, and making the most of moments. He also likes alliteration. He lives just outside Sheffield (UK) with a wife, a child, and a cat called Rosa.
Dan has contributed to the IA Conference by speaking, offering career mentoring and coaching, presenting a poster and running a workshop.
