We experience the work of user experience (UX) designers every time we interact with the web or a mobile app. From the color, size, shape, and texture of a button, to the text labels on a navigation menu. With a swipe of a finger, we can see the finesse in the transition from one screen to the next.
But, how do UX designers make decisions that ultimately form the digital world around us, so that our experience with that world is enhanced, specialized, and enjoyable?
Designer and educator Phil Bolles has worked with web technologies for almost 20 years, and is passionate about using visual media to educate, inspire, and connect people. He shares that passion in his projects and in his classrooms at General Assembly DC, where he teaches the multidisciplinary nature of UX design.
Phil will lead a three-hour workshop packed with hands-on learning activities, as well as short lectures on UX design best practices. He’ll talk about how to make smooth, rich experiences on the web; how to stay out of the way of web users; and how color, typography, images, and other media and can make a big impact on UX.
In this workshop, participants will:
- Learn about mental models and how they relate to users
- Think through design as a holistic term, as in how systems work
- Learn how to make decisions based on usercentric priorities
- Translate those decisions into user interface components
