Farida Hussain, Creative Director

Before taking on the role of Creative Director at Case Space Media, Farida spent seven years within a news team at Microsoft Canada. Their news app was her pet project as an editor—getting breaking news out before competitors and driving user engagement excited her. She also helped the Bing team make their search engine more news-user friendly and wrote catchy tag lines for Microsoft’s rewards program.

Farida holds a master’s degree in journalism from the University of British Columbia. News is important to a journalist, but she is more interested in how information is presented and shared. Farida is a web geek at heart, and has spent more hours than necessary surfing the internet, marvelling at well-designed websites and scoffing at poor user interfaces.
