Evan Dabbs made a bet that a deep background in music would translate well to a career in user experience design. I’m convinced he’s right.
I met Evan on LinkedIn after reading his Medium article, “The UX of Music.” The pandemic led him to explore new paths beyond his career as a band director (can you imagine conducting a school orchestra over Zoom?).
Evan shares keen insight into how similar the processes are for composing music and creating user-centered design. Have you ever thought about that brief moment of satisfaction between when a live performance ends and when the applause starts? Evan has and he is exploring what it could mean for designing satisfying experiences.
Evan’s second career in UX may just be getting started but it couldn’t have been built on a better foundation.
