Collaborative Content Design: Content, data, information, are the foundation of all products and services. Whether you are building a product, making a digital service, running a campaign, words and language are how we interact with each other – they can either connect, engage or alienate people.

Introduction to Systems and Boundaries: Digital transformation to intelligent systems has increased the impact that platforms, products and services have on our lives. Consequently, as designers, we are evolving from being experts on digital user interfaces to strategic design experts, who need to focus on critical systems design. Firat Toroglu, service and systems design capability lead at Fjord, will be running a mini-workshop to help the Dublin community explore Systems Design, a relatively new and emerging design capability.

The Hidden Power of Metaphor: Metaphors are extremely common in our everyday speech. In fact, experts estimate about 1 in 10 words we speak is actually a metaphor. What does this mean for designers? A lot! Paying attention to metaphors can make us better, more incisive listeners and help us get more value from our user research. Metaphors can also help us to set user expectations and build on their existing mental models. In this presentation, we’ll share what we’ve learned about using metaphors and invite you to try them out in your own work!

Midwest UX: In 2010, our founders brought together the Columbus chapters of the Interaction Design Association (IxDA) & Usability Professionals Association (UPA) to set the core values for Midwest UX. Our goal was to create a conference focused on creativity and rich in community -- with a grassroots feel across all UX disciplines. And unlike many national & international conferences, it has to be affordable and approachable for those who may have limited resources.

Interaction Latin America: Growing from a place of strength. This edition of ILA, we focus our gaze in a tiny country, with a population barely over 5 million inhabitants. A small stage for such a massive event? Au contraire, Costa Rica’s strength does not lay in its size, nor its territory or population; it thrives in its capacity to inspire. Our country inspires peace, environmental protection, and happiness. With 6% of the world’s biodiversity, it inspires design. From San José, ILA20 will open up space for a conversation around the impact of design in the Latin American region. ila.ixda.org/2020
