Ushida Findlay founder on her horrendous iTunes bills, finding old friends on LinkedIn and listening to jazz

Kathryn Findlay

What is your favourite website?

I don’t have one in particular. I refer to many.

What is your worst digital habit?

I love music – jazz in particular. My iTunes bills are horrendous.

iPhone/Blackberry/Android. Which side are you on?

I use a Blackberry and have been using it for years.  

Are you into social networking?

I have found some old friends and work colleagues on LinkedIn, which is nice.

Are you on Twitter? If so who do you recommend to follow?

@UshidaFindlay of course. We have only joined recently and so I am just getting used to it.

What is your favourite app?

I have an iPad and use the Brushes app. It’s really useful for communicating design concepts and ideas to my staff and clients. I am now hooked.

I like using the 360 Panorama app for taking panoramic pictures of sites and social occasions. I also like, Google Earth.

What is your preferred means of communication? (eg. Email, phone, face to face, text etc)

I am constantly doing all of the above and couldn’t function without any of them.

What did you last buy online?

Jelly moulds, I think.

PC or Mac?

I mostly use my iPad so I would have to say Mac – it’s better designed.

Guilty pleasures: Most played tunes from iTunes/Spotify?

Currently I’d say Lenny Tristano and Charlie Christian - but I wouldn’t say it’s a guilty pleasure.
