IxDA Dublin

Message to the group

IxDA Dublin was founded in October 2008, with just 8 members, to provide local Interaction Design practitioners and academics with an outlet to come together, share ideas and build community.

Since then we have been meeting on a monthly basis to discuss and present a range of topics relating to Interaction Design.  Membership of our community has reached the 300 mark.

Our monthly events tend to be informal, where a very social group of local designers discuss, present and host workshops around different themes. Topics covered to date include eye tracking, personas, beer storming, conference reviews, sketching workshops and innovation trials.

In November 2011, 2010 and 2009 we produced our most ambitious and successful event to date as part of Irish Design week. DEFUSE: Design For Use, featured 12 thought leaders from the IxD field, each presenting their inspiring ideas in the tricky yet entertaining "Ignite" 5 minute format. The event was free, received rave reviews and placed IxD firmly on the Dublin design map. We recored the 2010 & 2011 events, the videos are on YouTube. 

You are very welcome to join our group. Let us know if you have any questions or comments. We create our own local newsletter, if you would like to join you can do so here.

IxDA Dublin Bookclub 2011

Hi there,

Would anyone like to start contributing ideas for books that we might perhaps meet up and discuss in late March/early April?

I'll kick off with suggesting Gamestorming by Dave Gray. (Yep, aware that it's doing the rounds in a few UX Bookclubs :) )

Celine.

February Social - Rapid Design Challenges

Come and flex your creative muscles with Rapid Design Challenges at the IxDA Dublin February social. You've heard of 24-hour design challenges, maybe 1-hour design challenges...well we're going for 10-minute challenges! We'll be posing a number of fun, stimulating exercises on interaction, visual and creative design.

New members are very welcome. But don't worry, you don't have to be an expert interaction designer to come along, it's all just for fun and you'll be able to team up with other IxDAers. And as always there'll be plenty of time for social banter.

January Social - Design Resolutions - Neary's Thurs 27th

Happy New Year to all IxDA Dubliners!

By now, we expect that you have given up on your New Year's resolutions. Things like giving up drinking, exercising more, eating less cake. IxDA Dublin would like to invite you to our January Social, with minimum exercise required and with drink available for you, to set your 2011 design resolution.  We will have a design resolution board for everyone to be made publicly accountable for your resolutions, along with the normal IxDA social and the announcement of the new Dublin local leaders.

Do you use Whiteboards?

Hey guys, 

We're building a very simple app for teams that use Whiteboards. I expect that includes most UX people I know, or at least those with offices. I'd love all you guys to try it out, as we built it for people like us. 

If you're interested in giving it a shot, please send me a mail to des@contrast.ie and include anyone else on your team who you'd like to get on board with it. 

I'm very grateful for your time. 

Regards, 
Des
