The AIGA Boston UX Roundtable wants to know
interested in hosting?
We hosted our second UX Roundtable out at Mobiquity's Waltham Offices in November 2012
( TANK Design graciously hoseted the first area UX Roundtable ) and now we're looking to keep the conversation going at other design-related companies in and about the Greater Boston Area — please, drop us a line if you think your organization would consider inviting 20 to 30 UX design professionals from the area out for an evening of networking and critical discourse on the latest and greatest user-centered design practices
On Wednesday, November 14th, 2012
AIGA Boston and Mobiquity invite you to join a
A UX Mobile Roundtable with Mobiquity
UX / UI and mobile design / development professionals and enthusiasts
Mobiquity’s Offices in Waltham, Massachusetts
Mobiquity’s new Waltham Offices are located at:
51 Sawyer Road, Suite 410, Waltham, MA 02453
Wednesday, November 14th, 2012 from 6:30–8:00pm
Mobiquity would like to continue the UX discussion started with TANK design, further elaborating on current practices and methodologies for user-centered design in the mobile space
Title and Theme for the Evening:
How the Push for ‘Mobile First’
Confounds User-Centered Design
We’ll talk about how Luke W’s latest ‘Mobile First’ mantra might not best serve business goals and users and discuss a healthier ‘Story First’ approach to driving the UCD process for mobile, responsive and omni-channel experience design initiatives.
The night's theme and topic for consideration will most likely include, but not be limited to, the following suggested bullet points:
- Why is everyone so enamored by the mantra 'Mobile First'?
- What other methodologies and practices can be added to mix to provide a deeper toolset for user-centered design teams?
- When does true Agile development work best? When does it make better sense to improvise with this popular framework?
- How can we improve the way we think about the ever-popular ( and somewhat buzzy ) Responsive Design Solution ( RDS )?
- What other filters can help drive, inform and better contextualize experience design?
- Do you design for 'The Blue Sky'? Or do you stick to what only seems realistic to the engagement? How to establish, manage and steer client expectations along the design / development process?
AIGA Boston Members can sign up to participate on etouches at this link: https://www.etouches.com/51932. Space at the roundtable is limited to between 15 and 20 participants. We look forward to discussing this timely, hot topic with you, see you there!
