Designing to Appeal to Users’ Senses

Food = Interaction   Presentation by Bernard Lahousse   The Lost Art of Efficiency in Interaction Design   Presentation by Giles Colbourne  

Food = Interaction   Food is what you make of it. More than 50% of how you experience food is not in the food, but how you perceive it.  

The Lost Art of Efficiency in Design   Small changes in efficiency affect user behavior. Time is one of the most important aspects to a user’s experience.

Soft Skills in UX

How to Sell Your Ideas to Other People   Presentation by Jeroen van Geel   Why Executives Obsess Over Icons   Presentation by Uday Gajendar  

Selling Your Ideas   We sell all of the time. Selling an idea is just as important as coming up with the idea.  

Working with Executives   It’s about engaging with executives in an efficient manner that’s effective and that can enable the success of the business.  

Education & Mentorship

Learn to Drive Your UX Career   A workshop by Ian Swinson & Dan Donovan   Making More UX Designers   Presentation by Fred Beecher  

Learn to Drive Your UX Career   Figuring out your “North Star” is the first step toward achieving your goals. Most of us don’t take the time to do this.  

Making More UX Designers   There is a gap because UX design is strategic; you don’t want just anyone giving you advice on the direction of your business.  

Thank you! @UxPOV
