Dominic Gan

Creative Technologist

Singapore


"At Accenture, I have had the opportunity to work on extensive, complex projects that impact a large user base and I am proud to be able to contribute towards innovations that benefit people’s lives."

How I put change in motion

As a Creative Technologist, I am the bridge between the design and development teams. A good design system forms the foundation block for our project; thus it requires a clear design intent and close collaboration across teams to ensure that both design feasibility and technical limitations are communicated.

My goal is to help push the limits of the design teams and work hand-in-hand with our customer experience teams to build reusable and extendable design systems for our clients. My day-to-day routine involves refining design concepts and information architecture, gathering feedback, prototyping and project management before we end the day with a team stand-up meeting to share current progress with team members. Strong communication and project management skills are essential for the role. Above all, knowing how to solve problems is key as we may be required to pivot at a moment’s notice.

A day in my life

I typically start my day going through designs from my teammates. I look for new components and patterns to be documented in our design system, and fix inconsistencies before passing this information on to the frontend teams. There are times where I’m required to assist in building functional prototypes to help drive decision making and I also contribute to the frontend UI library code.

I work with a team of very talented designers – UX (User Experience) designers, visual designers, copywriters, and researchers. Each of us has a role to play in contributing to the entire design experience.

I thoroughly enjoy the empowering culture at Accenture. There is an abundance of training programs and career counselling set up to empower us to reach our highest potential. Being at Accenture makes me feel that the company is invested in my long term growth. I have opportunities to work on large scale projects that impact an extensive user base. It makes me proud to be a part of a company that contributes towards innovations that benefit people’s lives.

My advice

The landscape of our industry (frontend) evolves rapidly. In order to keep up with innovations in the field, one must invest in continuous learning to deliver the best work we can. Never stop learning!
