[Event] Chicago IxDA --Topic: Cultural Probes --Wed Sep 10th

Hello fellow Chicagoans,

Please join us on Wednesday, Sep 10th for our next Chicago IxDA gathering!

Polly Greathouse will be presenting a talk on remote research titled
Cultural Probes. Here is a summary below:

Remote research techniques to empower people to share what really matters,
just in time

When we need to understand real-time, deeply personal experiences observing
from a distance adds value to research. Businesses, design planners and
product designers hunger for revelations about what people really do and why
they do it.

Usability testing a build and supplementing it with paper mocks

I'm currently in the process of usability testing a build. The build
consists of a lot of functionality but some of those parts are not
connected to the main navigation. People can still access the
functionality but not from the correct places.

I'm considering providing the user tasks to complete and filling in
the missing flow pieces with paper mocks.

[event] IxDA Boston UX Show & Tell

Do you have... - A nagging design problem? - An interesting new technique? - A crazy idea that needs validation?

Do you need... - A comfortable place to get friendly feedback? - Practice giving or receiving design critique? - Free pizza and drinks?

UX Show & Tell is a casual workshop that's all about the work. Show shortcuts. Ask what to annotate in a wireframe. Draft scenarios and user stories, and identify one from the other.

[worth reading] "Future of Making" Map, by the INSTITUTE OF THE FUTURE

"Two future forces, one mostly social, one mostly technological, are
intersecting to transform how goods, services, and experiences—the
"stuff" of our world—will be designed, manufactured, and distributed
over the next decade. An emerging do-it-yourself culture of "makers"
is boldly voiding warranties to tweak, hack, and customize the
products they buy. And what they can't purchase, they build from
scratch. Meanwhile, flexible manufacturing technologies on the horizon
will change fabrication from massive and centralized to lightweight
and ad hoc.

Pixel Perfect ppi

Fellow Designers,

What is the best way to design icons for multiple devices? Different devices (Andriod, Windows Phone 7) have different screen specs - each phone has a different pixel-per-inch resolution.

By what method would one ensure that icons look crisp across devices with different ppi?

Thanks!

[LOCAL] Houston Design Workshop tomorrow, Tue, Oct 11

Just a reminder: tomorrow is Houston UX's second event, a presentation and workshop on implementing design critiques. In addition to learning how to run critiques, we'll look at how to make critiques apart of your organization's culture.

We've also invited local startups, entrpreneurs, and app developers, so they can learn how to measure and learn from what they've built. As a plus, UX folks will get the chance to meet lots of local folks who might need UX talent, but not know who to reach out to.

Breadcrumb Trail Separator Terminolgoy

In the interest of a controlled vocabulary, what terms have you used, or do you prefer to use for the > that is placed between breadcrumb trail elements?

^ is a caret, but that isn't quite accurate.  "Greater-than sign" just sounds out of place.

Thanks in advance for your replies.
