UX design for the web is a hot topic, but far too often we find it too hard to pin down so we just touch the surface and don’t explore the depths. Design Currency 2010 is excited to have Steve Fisher, Senior UX Designer from to present a one hour workshop as a feature of our education track. The workshop is open to all conference delegates.

About the workshop

As it is becoming something of a de-facto standard it is in our best interest as interactive designers to understand the discipline. No longer something that has to always be hugely complex and costly, we'll cover the "back to basics" approach to UX design.

Questions we'll answer together:

  • So many different people using the web there should be a best practice, intuitive user experience for the design. So why do Drupal, Joomla, Wordpress and others do it so differently? Take an inside look at the UX process used in developing some of the leading CMS admins.
  • What is UX design?
  • Simple vs. Complex?
  • How do different website designers handle the UX design process?
  • What are some best practices for UX design?
  • What are the benefits to the end user?
  • How do you organise IA to simplify the user experience?
  • Can a simple design work in a complex situation?
  • How do you use UX patterns to speed up a design?
  • How do you create a solution that will work in a broad context?
  • What do I(we) recommend?
