[Event] IxDA Helsinki + IxDA Book Club, this thursday!!
16 Feb 2010 - 4:15pm
Welcome to the February meetup for IxDA Helsinki this Thursday!
The event will be hosted (and beers&snacks provided) by Hammerkit at their offices in Technopolis at Ruoholahti, Hiilikatu 3.
Agenda is as follows;
- bookclub discussion on Emotional Design by Don Norman
- a design case presented: Hammerkit Studio by Hammerkit
- a design case presented: Linja Zax 2.0 by Linja Design
We hope to turn the case presentations more into a discussion than one-sided presentation, so feel free to voice your opinions and ideas on the cases presented.

- From the city centre, eithert take the subway to Ruoholahti or tram n:o 8 at the end stop Salmisaari
Apart from the usual mingling and free-form discussions there will also be a book club gathering. As voted by YOU on www.ixda.fi in December, the book in question will be "Emotional Design: Why we love (or hate) everyday things" by Donald Norman.
So go get the book, read it and join in on the discussion on the book's themes. We'll try to keep the discussions more on the themes of the book than the book itself, so everybody can join in regardless if they've read the book or not. To participate the discussion, please bring with you one everyday thing that you either love or hate (or bring a photo instead, if hauling the item itself is impractical).
The discussion will revolve around these items that evoke our emotions, so you can join in easily even if you haven't read Norman's book. And there will also be a brief introduction to the main themes of the book.
