Mobile UX Essentials
Recent innovations are causing an inflection point in the mobile UX landscape, providing the opportunity to invent new and more human ways for people to interact with information. But where do designers who are steeped in the static desktop-computing paradigm begin? The purpose of this talk is to help UX designers and other UX professionals answer that very question. I'll share the three most important mobile design principles to consider when creating a mobile user experience, some mobile design exercises, and mobile prototyping tips.

Rachel Hinman is a researcher and UX designer and a recognized thought leader in the field of mobile UX design. The driving forces in her career have been her passions for cultural study, art, and design, coupled with the belief that people can use technology to improve the human condition. Currently, Rachel is a Senior Research Scientist at the Nokia Research Center, in Palo Alto, California, where she focuses on the research and design of emergent and experimental mobile user  interfaces and mobile experiences for emerging markets. Prior to joining Nokia, Rachel was an Experience Design Director at Adaptive Path, and a researcher and strategist for the mobile group at Yahoo! Rachel writes and speaks frequently on the topic of mobile research and design. She is the creative force behind the 90 Mobiles in 90 Days Project, and Interactions Magazine, BusinessWeek, and Wired have featured her perspectives on mobile user experience. Rachel received her Masters Degree in Design Planning from the Institute of Design in Chicago.
