The Alchemy of User Experience

Presented by: Benjamin Bykowski
Time: Thursday, Jan. 10, 8:00 AM - 9:00 AM

al-che-my (noun) : any magical power or process of transmuting a common substance, usually of little value, into a substance of great value. The goal of the alchemist is to produce a Master Work by steadily improving the mind and the body. When seeking the best outcome in UX, there is hardly a difference. We'll explore the practice of using cyphers such as the Gestalt principles of design and the transmutation of base concepts like the Golden Ratio, and place what we find in our crucible of rapid prototypes. We'll consider what emerges as prophesied by agile usability testing and with some luck find the Elixir of Life contained in the UX Philosopher's Stone - a collection of tools and techniques for practicing UX Alchemy. One lucky apprentice will leave with a copy of Illuminate by Nancy Duarte.
