Designer's role in the UED development: – Authorship or engineering? Talk by Carlo Bernoulli
After January's fulminant kick of we continue the 2010
season with another highly interesting talk by Carlo Bernoulli on our
(aka the designer's) role in the complex environments of nowadays
digital production. Having experienced creative set-ups of all kinds at
e.g. iconmobile (www.iconmobile.com), palm (www.palm.com) or yahoo!
(www.yahoo.com), Carlo is certainly one of the most inspired experts on
design management and the questions that arise for designers at the
intersection of technology, business and user experience. Please notice, this time we start at 8pm due to another event right before us!
A quick outline on what Carlo is about to cover:
What is UED? The man-machine problem -The cognitive gulf -Design as engineering -Design as eduction -Design as mediation
The status quo -The usability problem -The performance support approach -Scenario driven interface design -Goal oriented interface design -The pattern approach
Towards a grand theory of UED Inductive and deductive aspects of design Forces and affordances 'Determinism' 'Creativity' 'Synthesis'
Dealing with complexity Objects Rulesets Knowledge based systems
UI development as a knowledge-based system Process Patterns Guidelines Conditional pattern logic
The designers role Threat and opportunity Design as a fixer-upper Slave to the machine
Claiming responsibility Metrics for success
Politics Doing the right thing Accepting accountability
After-talk agenda stays the same as usual, mainly around the cornerstones "bar", "chatting", "drinks".
