Design Operations: Amplifying the Value of Design

Design Operations or DesignOps is a growing practice inside the field of Design Management. As organizations are maturing their design practice, they are realizing the same things that other parts of their organizations have–that we need to design our operations so that we can scale our strengths and maintain and even amplify the value of our teams. In this talk, Dave Malouf will highlight the key areas for designing your Design Ops and how doing so will help make a big difference in the value your design teams can provide your organizations and your customers.

Prototypes: Choosing the Right Tools and Workflow

All UX designers have at one time or another struggled to communicate a concept, describe an interaction, or get feedback from a user on a new feature or design. Team members are working remotely now more than ever, thus the ability to communicate clear ideas and accurately describing interactions has become more critical. Sometimes, wireframes or mockups are not enough; you need a prototype.

That’s the reason why prototyping tools have become so important in our way of discussing/exchanging/ brainstorming with our stakeholders, designers and developers.

So what prototyping tools should you use and integrate into your workflows? During this month’s event, we will review the pros and cons of different existing prototyping tools, put them to the test using a consistent set of examples and share advice and resources so you can develop your own prototyping skills.

AGENDA

Interaction 17 Conference

Interaction design happens everywhere. As any thing becomes a surface for interaction, any where becomes a place where design happens. Interaction17 asks: how does environment shape interaction, and how should we, as designers, respond? Join us at IxDA’s 10th annual gathering, as 1,000 design leaders, professionals, and students converge for an active program of workshops, talks, and awards.

The theme of the conference is “Design in Context”. The conference team is hard at work making preparations, but you can order your tickets right now! The Interactions conference has never come to New York City before, so we expect the conference tickets to sell out quickly. We are looking forward to an awesome conference right in our hometown. We hope you can join us!

Story First: Crafting Products That Engage

While many of us seek out the newest and shiniest tools, methods, and processes to build more successful products and services, we often overlook one of the oldest, leanest, most effective tools out there: the structurally sound story. Whether you realize it or not in the moment, you experience everything as if it was a story. The better the story, the more likely you are to want to use a product, continue to use it, pay to use it, and recommend it to others. In this talk, you will see how taking a story first approach to product design and development will help you build more successful products and services that excite your customers, draw them in, incite them to action, and keep them engaged over time.
