Former Apple design guru hired by Huawei to improve its UX
There’s no denying that Huawei has been on a roll with its smartphone offerings lately. The company’s hardware offerings for 2015 have gathered a ton of praise, and the new Nexus 6P and Mate S are proof of this. Still, we have to admit that the company has a lot to improve when it comes to its overall user experience, and it seems that it has taken some giant steps in that direction.
Huawei has just hired Abigail Brody, one of Apple’s former user experience design gurus. If you’re wondering just how important she was to Apple, think of the fact that she spent a decade working for Cupertino as a key player in the design of the original iPhone, OS X, and other important Apple applications like Aperture and Final Cut Pro. She left Apple in 2011 for reasons we still can’t confirm, but has been working in revamping PayPal ever since.
Huawei’s current trend in design matched with a coherent user experience would be a killer combo going forward. We even hear that the company is actually creating a US-based design studio to back Brody in her next challenge, so yes, this move is serious.
