Is it true that the next generation of user interfaces are conversational interfaces? This presentation looks beyond the hype to examine why conversational interfaces offer new opportunities for swifter more satisfying interaction. It also shines a light on some of the pitfalls into which conversational interfaces can easily fall. It unpacks the psychology of human conversation and shows how you can turn this into design principles for more satisfying user experiences – whether you’re building a conversational user interface or a standard touch UI.
The world of personal data is changing. Consumer mistrust is at an all-time high. Regulations like the GDPR threaten the very existence of leading digital business models. We, as designers, sit at the forefront of much of this change. We have the power to empower the people we serve as customers. We are the ones who will be tasked with closing the trust gap and solving many of the problems that plague the market today. Nathan's talk will introduce you to the rapidly evolving personal data landscape. He'll present a framework for getting really close to the people you serve as customers. He'll then show you how to evolve your design process through Data Transparency by Design. This is how fast-moving organisations are converting 'trust design' into their competitive advantage.
It's easy to find cautionary tales of organisations that bet the house on a future that never came. It's even easier to find products that have launched only to miss the core problem they were designed to solve. At a time when our tools, methods, and access to real people is better than ever, how are we still making poor design decisions? Why do our assumptions and biases stop us from designing experiences that people love? In this talk Brendan will explore research and practical prototyping methods as a way of rapidly learning and predicting how people are likely to think, feel, and behave.
You try to create an amazing user experience but business/product is asking for an MVP that can be released in a couple of weeks. Who wins in such a situation? What do you sacrifice - money, time, UX? Fights have been fought, tears have been shed about this (… well, maybe not literally but you get my point). Let’s talk about a different perspective that hopefully puts an end to this struggle. Understanding what kind of MVP is required in which situation, for which product and how to design for it, is crucial to making the right decisions. It all starts with the question: Why are you building this MVP in the first place?
Can will be speaking about how to build a design driven product in Startups and growing companies. But with a twist. The talk targets a diverse audience from Executives to Designers. From this talk, you can expect to be inspired and be reminded by different perspectives on building digital products. The talk will reflect on few examples and breakdown of few cases why they were successful or not.
As designers, our mission is to craft unique experiences and make meaningful change in human life. In order to achieve our mission, we strive to work with various disciplines, CEO’s and executives that recognize the power of design, support bold decisions and pursue novelty with great energy. In this talk, we will discuss how to create open-minded company cultures that value design, appreciate risk taking and empower creatives to achieve their best.
Without exploration, taking risks or learning from failure there’s little chance of innovation in our products or customer experiences. Great innovators don’t just solve problems they actively seek them out, our human nature and the spirit of exploration allows us to be truly innovative. Explore, discover, innovate!
If you’re an experienced UX Designer then chances are you were doing UX before it was even called ‘UX’, and you’ve probably either learned on-the-job, or are self-taught, but as demand for UX Designers rises, the education sector must now take notice. Raffaela will share her insights from what the Ed-Tech space is doing now to fill the skills gap, and what we can expect to see happening in the education sector as it catches up and attempts to meet demand with supply of these much-needed skills. Raffaela will talk about what UX-learners, and anyone recruiting UX Designers, should know about these changes, and how they can be equipped for what’s to come.
It is a fact that user experience is something that can not be avoided if you are presenting a physical or digital product to the consumers. But, does one UX fits all? In this session 2 gamification expert, Olcayto Cengiz and E.Altuğ Yılmaz, will share their learnings and thoughts about the journey of todays' consumer and why designing a UX for gamification, a “GX", is the key that unlocks new levels in users mindset.
When a product is designed to serve for more than 20 countries with different languages, cultural backgrounds, technological limitations and daily habits, It is no longer enough to translate it from English. There should be a more extensive research and thought process to transform these insights into each element of the product. In her speech, Dilara will cover how to transform these differences into Product Design to localize a global product for different markets.
This talk will discuss how designers should shift their mindset from one that caters to screen-based devices and constant distractions, to one that leverages today’s powerful and ubiquitous technologies and creates subtle solutions for real world problems.
This workshop will consist of designing small UI interface projects in Sketch and a lot’s of hands-on prototyping using a tool called Framer.
