Design Thinking Challenge from IxDA Cincinnati

We invite the Cincinnati community to a remote workshop, where we will guide attendees through the practice of Design Thinking to solve together, “How might we attract more diversity in students pursuing design careers in the Cincinnati region?”
Your facilitators, Amy Copelin and Cristine Cravens, will introduce the design thinking methods we’ll be using in the workshop, and then breakout groups will enable you to put those skills to practice, working collaboratively in small breakout groups.
This is a fun way to learn new design thinking skills, or apply ones you’re already familiar with, and network with others while solving a design challenge to benefit our shared design practice.

World Usability Day Rome 2021

The WUDRome Multi-Day learning & networking experience

World Usability Day Rome is one of Italian editions of the World Usability Day that every year deepens topics about Usability, User Experience, Human-centered design and many other topics related to Service Design.

Due to the delicate situation surrounding the COVID-19 emergency, we decided to postpone the offline event to 2022 and make the 2021 edition online and in attendance from a number of company locations with access by reservation only.

The 2021 Theme

Internet has completely revolutionised the way people live over the last few decades, breaking down distances, shaping new possibilities and presenting new challenges.

From work meetings to medical appointments, many of our daily activities, such as the way of working, booking systems to access services or new forms of socializing, have turned virtual.

Design must respond to the needs arising from an emergency system and adapt to our current way of life. We are now faced with the challenges of designing for our online world:

– How do we create trust in the online environment?
– What are the ethical implications of our designs?
– How do we design for accessibility, to ensure that everyone can use our designs?

The World Theme 2021 explores Design Systems that help people stay connected, learn and grow despite the current challenging times we are experiencing.

Speakers will come from different cities, connecting from their company headquarters.

 

More details coming soon.

STHLM Xperience Conference 2021

A hybrid conference for designers by designers

Design of our Online World: Trust, Ethics and Integrity

In order to celebrate World Usability Day we follow the theme that they set, this year’s theme – Design of our Online World: Trust, Ethics and Integrity.

This year’s theme focuses on how the internet has transformed our lives and reduced the world to a global village. From work meetings to medical appointments, many of our daily activities have turned virtual. We are now faced with the challenges of designing for our online world:

– How do we create trust in the online environment?
– What are the ethical implications of our designs?
– How do we design for accessibility, to ensure that everyone can use our designs?

In this year’s theme, we seek to explore online design systems that are helping us stay connected, learn and grow in these transformational times. Through this theme, we aim to address important issues such as Dark patterns and Ethical design, Designing for Trust, and Diversity, Equity and Inclusion.

Design for our online world: From Mexico

Este 2021, el Día Mundial de la Usabilidad se celebra el 11 de noviembre. Por segundo año consecutivo en UXPA MX estamos organizando este evento en línea y nos encantaría poder contar con tu participación.

El tema de este 2021 es Diseño de nuestro mundo en linea: Confianza, ética e integridad.

En un breve lapso de 30 años, Internet ha transformado nuestras vidas y ha reducido el mundo a una aldea global. Desde reuniones de trabajo hasta citas médicas, muchas de nuestras actividades diarias se han vuelto virtuales. Ahora nos enfrentamos a los desafíos de diseñar para nuestro mundo en línea:

– ¿Cómo generamos confianza en el entorno en línea?
– ¿Cuáles son las implicaciones éticas de nuestros diseños?
– ¿Cómo diseñamos para la accesibilidad, para asegurarnos de que todos puedan usar nuestros diseños?

En nuestro tema de este año, buscamos explorar los sistemas de diseño en línea que nos ayudan a mantenernos conectados, aprender y crecer en estos tiempos de transformación. A través de este tema, nuestro objetivo es abordar cuestiones importantes como los patrones oscuros y el diseño ético, el diseño para la confianza y la diversidad, la equidad y la inclusión.

Estaremos anunciando la agenda con las charlas y el panel del evento.
