With 27 years in the aviation industry, London-based Ink Executive Director Jonathan Norris knows a thing or two about airplanes. In this session, Jonathan will share what the airline industry is doing to evolve the passenger experience, ranging from physical aspects, like cabin lighting, to digital ones, such as the way the in-flight entertainment business is dealing with the iPad. He’ll also share the similarities that exist between his world and the world of NYC UX teams, such as the challenges to complete a project, and the balance that must be maintained between an Executive Board that is focused on revenue and designers who are focused on the end user. We invite you to participate in an event that covers a topic seldom discussed on the East Coast, yet nonetheless impacts us all.
