Brad Nunnally is the Director of Service Design at U.Group and a co-author of “Designing The Conversation: Techniques for Successful Facilitation” for New Riders (Voices That Matter) and “UX Research: Practical Techniques for Designing Better Products” for O’Reilly Media.
During his career, Brad has worked with clients spanning almost every major industry, mostly focusing on healthcare and financial services. For the past few years, Brad has enjoyed writing and speaking on topics that include user research, interactive prototyping, and how cognitive psychology applies to design. Recently, he has taken that passion to work more closely with the public sector.
He now spends his days contemplating how the government can be redesigned to be more people-focused and how organizations can mature to meet the demands of how business and technology work today. When he is not thinking about the world of design, he spends time learning important life lessons from his children, playing too many videos and tabletop games, and learning woodworking through a constant string of failures.
