Event description: 

IxDA Seattle is pleased to announce our first in a series of events focusing on the "other" user. Over the course of several events we will explore ways to apply the principles of user-centered design to our deliverables, presentations, and other communication tools. The series goal is to consider not only the end-user of our designs but the people who influence the success of our designs. For our design ideas to be successful we must effectively communicate them while considering the goals and behaviors of the "other" user, who include clients, developers, and visual designers.

We hope that you can join us and contribute your ideas and experience to the discussion.

The first series event will be co-presented by Jon Mann, Olen Ronning and Paul Hoover of Artefact. They will share not only how they found innovative ways of applying user-centered design principles to client deliverables but will leave us with practical tools that can be directly applied to our work. Following their presentation there will be an audience Q&A.

EVENT DETAILS

When:
- Thursday, December 8, 2011
- Doors Open at 6:30PM, light refreshments will be served
- Presentation starts at 7:00PM, followed by a Q&A


Who:
- Jon Mann, Olen Ronning and Paul Hoover

Please note that event space is limited to approximately the first 50 people. Please try and arrive early.

If you are planning to attend, please RSVP to this event so we can get an idea of attendance.

I'm in.  As both a UCD proponent and startup junkie, I'd be interested in hearing the low doc set (i.e. lean UX) perspective.

The event is taking place at Artefact, which is located at 225 Terry Ave N, Suite 300.  I believe their offices are in South Lake Union.  If you're familiar with the area it's close to Portage Bay and Flying Fish.

Please also note the time - it's from 6:30 to 8:30.

We hope you can make it!

The Other User presentation is tonight at Artefact!

We're really excited by the presentation Jon, Olen and Paul have developed. The presentation has great insights and practical advice on how to sell a vision to clients by building a strong partnership founded on trust and mutual understanding, communicating early and often with key stakeholders and contributors, and engaging with rich and interactive storytelling. 

We look forward to seeing you there as we kick off the first in a four-part series that explores users beyond the end user. 

Remember space is limited so please try and arrive early. Doors open at 6:30 and the presentation begins promptly at 7:00.
