SECOND ANNUAL INTERACTION DESIGN STUDIO

You are invited to join the New York IxDA community for a hands-on,
interactive design studio evening.

RSVP: See special instructions below

Last fall we launched our very first Studio event, which was a lot of fun
and gave us a chance to practice design together, sharing our experience as
a diverse group. (More about last year's event here:
http://tinyurl.com/3362rx) The second annual IxD Studio will be a similar
format: a one-hour design exercise addressed from within small breakout
groups, followed by a constructive group critique led by Liya Zheng and
Jeanine Harriman.

The exercise has been designed to help you explore:

- The design of information in a ubiquitous medium

- The intersections of the UX disciplines we know as Information Architecture, Interaction Design, and Service Design

Through participation in this studio, you will:

- Refine your current design techniques and gain exposure to new ones

- Understand the thinking behind the various concepts presented by the rest
of the group, identifying opportunities and directions to further your own
designs

- Gain insights into how to build a constructive studio environment to
support your work; where critiques may be used to advance design concepts
and practices.

Because of the collaborative nature of this workshop we encourage
participants with a wide variety of background and skill levels; a diverse
group maximizes the potential for participants to learn from each other.

That would be great Christina! You should shoot Pabini an email with
the idea.

As another opportunity, Liya & Jeanine will be doing this studio as a
pre-conf workshop at the IxDA conference this coming February.
