If someone you know is looking to hire or be hired, please think of us.

We will take good care of anyone you refer. We can answer questions they have about the market or talk through ways to optimise their hiring process. We can even introduce them to other specialist recruiters if their skills are not in areas we know extremely well. So if you're unsure, refer them anyway.

Successful referrals are rewarded with your choice of a gift voucher, donation to charity or community event sponsorship to the value of $1,000. (Eligible three months after successful placement. Referral must be to a client or candidate we are not currently working with.)

Code Heart Design 2018

Friday 30th November was the first ever Code Heart Design conference - a mini-conf bringing together designers, design system lovers and front-end developers. Lookahead were given the pleasure of being one of the sponsors of the event and I happily volunteered to go!

Keynote speaker Sharon Steed taught us all about empathy - how it’s not a feeling but a choice that requires action and continual effort. And how empathy shapes a company’s culture more than any other core value.

Most of the talks were centred on where design meets code. There were some interesting demos and talks on how tooling for designers is moving beyond static images and utilising code and real data to reduce handover friction from designers to developers.

One of the highlights of the afternoon was Russ Weakley’s talk on accessibility. He passed on a lot of easy to implement tips to improve accessibility and entertained us all while doing so.

The conference was well organised, the people were friendly & welcoming, the food was delicious and we all came home with some great swag!

I can’t think of anything that could’ve been done better and considering this was their first conference that’s an awesome achievement! Looking forward to next year’s and I hope to see you there!
