Hi all, sorry for the cross-duplication--just my once-a-season plug for Rosenfeld Media's upcoming UX workshop series (http://rosenfeldmedia.com/workshops/ ). As always, they're very practical and engaging, with lots of hands-on exercises, and intimate (typically capped at 50 per workshop). This season we've assembled an amazing line-up of day-long workshops and instructors:
Design. Innovation. Story: an Odyssey of Confluence
Leading academics, designers, professionals and artists will gather at Savannah College of Art and Design for the International Digital Media and Art Association's ninth annual conference, to explore how digital media and art is a confluence of creative innovations.
Rosenfeld Media is pleased to present full-day workshops by five leading User Experience experts (Steve Krug, Lou Rosenfeld, Ginny Redish, Indi Young, and Whitney Quesenbery) in three cities (San Francisco, Atlanta, and Chicago). Details follow; discounts are available for early bird registration and for groups of three or more. Please spread the word!
As interaction designers we do well at facilitating the complex
dialogue between people and the interactive products they use. But we
often neglect to consider the story that evolves through the
interactions people have with the things we make. Designing with a
narrative in mind can make a difference between a product that merely
functions well and a product that engages the minds, emotions and
imaginations of users.
Tuesday, November 10, 2009, 7 p.m. at Hornall Anderson Experience Lab,
3rd Ave & Cherry St, Seattle, WA. Chris Monberg, producer/director of
Hornall Anderson Experience Lab and Dawn Clark, principal at NBBJ
Architecture, will discuss the use of narrative in architecture, and
how they create immersive human experiences, of varying scale and
impact, to evoke responses from audiences. HIVE is an ongoing series
that spans information design, interaction design, product design,
and architecture. AIGA Members: $10; Nonmembers: $15. Student
