With wearable tech like Google Glass, human behavior is now a design problem

Wearable devices will offer practical, novel and fun usefulness but will also be able to influence our behavior in ways good and bad, creating ethical dilemmas for designers.

Story
Tagline
Life at the business end of creativity
Introduction
I am a Creative Director at Add Design, the graphic and web design company based in Colchester, Essex. I have been in the design agency world for 20+ years and work in the tricky bit where creativity meets customers as an Accounts Manager. A short summary of my role - keeping clients and designers happy, sometimes even at the same time.

Away from Add Design I have a keen interest in design (graphic and web obviously, but also furniture, interior, car and product). Also a keen cyclist and can often be found at the weekend putting in the miles. That aside, I am also partial to a Adnams beers, good food and watching rugby.  

Bragging rights
Designed and printed a book for the Queen and went to St James's Palace for the presentation reception.

We looked at a few different call answering services, but found Message Direct's approach to be more helpful and straightforward than others. We were given good guidance without trying to push a sale or make us spend more than we needed to. Since using the service we have found it quietly efficient, with a friendly dedicated account handler to contact with any questions or concerns. We would therefore recommend them to other businesses looking for a phone answering solution.
