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.
- Designing for the Present Future w/ Socratic Experience Design
How do you design what you design? What is the typical thought process you go through? Have you considered interrogating the way you think and how you make (design) decisions in order to make better ones?
Often as Designers (which includes you “strategists” and “creatives”) due to habit, external pressures and lack of resources we can often get to solution mode too quickly. Even with the best tools, strategy, UX and design thinking methods in mind, rapid solutioning before proper questioning can often lead to far less than ideal outcomes.
With technology, formats and problem spaces evolving daily a very old but often unconsidered form of thinking, questioning, needs consideration. How can the skill of inquiry be developed to help us solve bigger (design) problems in more inspiring ways? In this interactive talk we’ll discuss how the process of forming beautiful questions can help strengthen your design process, revitalize the artifacts you make, help you get a seat at “the grown-up table” in your organization and prepared you for a world of never ending design.
