Working with design & authoring software all day, every day for many, many years got me thinking that great UX is just the latest buzzword for user interface design. We all appreciate a well-designed website, a beautiful, immersive game environment, and a computer program that is intuitively designed so you can get started right away with it.
But all of this assumes that UX only takes place only within the confines of my fine LCD monitor.
So, it was eye opening for me, to say the least, to hear presentations at UXWEEK.com on creating engaging UX:
I'll write more about some of these sessions in future posts (assuming that my editor lets me!).
What this tells me is:
So, there you have it. UX is way bigger than I thought and there are many, many more people working on UX in ways that I never thought of. Seems that's the reason they send us to conferences, no?
As a footnote, the UX Week site is now posting slide decks and other session materials from the conference. Go check them out!
