Tom Greever will be joining us to discuss his new book Articulating Design Decisions published by O'Reilly Media. (You do not need to have read the book to participate.) Every designer has had to justify designs to non-designers, yet most lack the ability to explain themselves in a way that is compelling and fosters agreement. The ability to effectively articulate design decisions is critical to the success of a project, because the most articulate person often wins.
At some point we’ve all had a great user insight or design concept that a client or stakeholder just didn't buy into. This talk is about how to avoid that heartbreak. It’s about generating and spreading ideas that stay with your audiences.
We live with machines all around us. The fabric of our cities is made up of connected nodes that track weather, traffic, and commerce. These machines send us messages, tell us what to wear, show us entertainment, and monitor our behaviour. Our physical world is networked and made of code, and we usually don't even notice it. This is the programmable world, a world we now live in where everything is new media.
Just to let you know that the UXLx Lightning Talks submission process is underway. If you're coming to UXLX and you're excited about a new technique you came up with, have interesting case studies to show or just want to share your extensive experience in a niche topic, this is your platform. And yes, you'll be joining a fantastic programme and the best speakers around.
Norsk Form og Oslo Lufthavn (OSL) inviterer til DogA-samtale om tjenestedesign den 9.mai, i forlengelse av konkurransen "Tjenestedesign - reisendes opplevelse".
OSL satser nå på tjenestedesignere for å nå visjonen og
styrke omdømmet sitt – fra å være god til å være best. Er ikke det en
jobb for reklame- og markedsfolk? Og hvordan henger
organisasjonsutvikling og tjenestedesign egentlig sammen? Designerne vil
bidra til å øke flyplassens passasjerorientering og gjøre opplevelsene
av å være på flyplassen bedre.
Hi fellow IxDAers! UXLx is happening again this year on May 16 to 18 in sunny Lisbon, Portugal. Again, we're accepting submissions for talks until January 27.
