Upcoming Events


Phoenix Design Week event - "Design Collaboration"

Wednesday, October 21 6:00-9:00pm

Western International University 1601 West Fountainhead Parkway, Tempe, AZ 85282


The relationships designers have with colleagues is just as important as the methods and processes they use.

These relationships include marketing, product owners, executives, other designers and naturally, developers. The designer-developer relationship is perhaps the most dynamic and certainly the most detailed of the other relationships. Developers and designers have different personalities, communication styles and use different processes and tools. However, they also have shared interests and priorities. When this relationship is optimized through mutual respect, communication and understanding, zen moments of form and functional bliss can be achieved.

This event will include an interactive panel of developers and designers, a short presentation on Agile design methods and an interactive opportunity to design along with developers.

Journey Mapping 101

Wednesday, September 23 6:00-8:00pm

Coplex 688 West 1st Street Tempe, AZ 85281


Journey Mapping is a powerful research tool that helps you visualize the customer experience and pin-point pivotal moments that can be the difference in getting more business, or losing it. But what, exactly, is a Journey Map? When is it used? And what goes in to making one? Join IxDA Phoenix Local Leader Tony Quiroz and Ethology's Senior UX Design Strategist, Sean Rice, in this month's event to explore the fundamentals of Journey Mapping. The event will include a short presentation, discussion, and activity. There will also be a 5-minute Ignite-style introduction. Come join us!

Thank you to Tony Quiroz and Sean Rice for sharing their awesome Ethology work. View the slides here: http://www.slideshare.net/tquirozAZ/journey-mapping-101-ixda-phoenix
