IxDA New York City

The IxDA New York City local group organizes monthly presentations and workshops for people interested in interaction design. Our events gather together a vibrant community of professionals who design interactive systems, services and products of all kinds: web, desktop, enterprise, mobile, consumer electronics, digitally-enhanced environments, and more. Our programming is created by a passionate group of local leader volunteers and realized through the generosity of speakers, sponsors, and host partners. While our events cater to the interaction design community, all are welcome.

Upcoming Events

UX Show and Tell at Moment

The UX Show and Tell is back in New York with the generous support of IxDA New York and Moment!

THE FORMAT
Bring your deliverables to either get useful, implementable feedback or to show unique solutions to potentially common design problems. Drafts/incomplete work is welcome!

We’ll have a round-table discussion where one person tells the group if they need help with a design problem, or if they are sharing a unique solution that’s worked well for them in the past.

Questions and dialogue from the rest of the group are expected and encouraged–this isn’t meant to be one person presenting to an audience!

If you don’t want to bring anything to show, you’re more than welcome to attend and contribute to the discussion.

We’ll decide later where to take the discussions after the event is officially over at 8:45 PM.

WHO SHOULD PARTICIPATE?
As always, all veteran, novice, or prospective user experience designers, information architects, web developers, content strategists, graphic designers, etc. are encouraged to share deliverables or just attend.

Paper deliverables are perfectly acceptable, and we’ll also have wireless internet, a projector and screen available for showing work. Feel free to bring deliverables from old jobs, prototypes, pet projects, or anything else you need help with or think could benefit others.

If you plan to share, please indicate what you’re bringing (by posting a comment on uxshowandtell.com) so others can bring their own potentially relevant examples.

Don’t forget to sign up at www.uxshowandtell.com and join the New York City group to continue discussions long after the event is over.

If you are interested in showing your work, please choose “UX Show and Tell Presenter” as your ticket type and contact us at nyc.ixda@gmail.com so we can notify you of any possible last-minute changes to the format.

Making Interaction with Government Delightful

Why should government websites and applications be dreary, hard to use, and inaccessible?

From government data hackathons to incubators like Code for America, more and more UXers are designing the tools of our civic life, and working to make them vibrant, useful, delightful experiences. We’ll look at some of the successes — and pitfalls. And think about how UX can improve civic design and what we can learn for UX when we design for the broad audience of civic design.

Do you have an example of a great government app? Drop us a line about why you think it’s great, and maybe it will show up as an example in the presentation.

Drinks and refreshments provided by the event sponsor, Experis New York.
