Adaptable Information Architecture: How to Say No to Your Next Redesign
Is your site stuck in a cycle of redesign after expensive, painful redesign?Are you tired of making short-term, cosmetic changes, and never really solving problems for your site's users?Then attend this workshop!
Lou Rosenfeld, co-author of Information Architecture for the World Wide Web, will teach you practical skills and show you design approaches that will help you tune and tweak your site's information architecture, improve your users' experiences with your site, all while costing your employer less than just about any redesign initiative.
May 24 - RACHEL HINMAN
Mobile Prototyping Essentials
We’ve heard it all before… prototype, prototype, prototype! It’s a standard step in almost any design process — but often the first step skipped in time and budget constrained projects. Although prototyping is considered a luxury for many PC-based experiences, it is an absolutely essential part of creating compelling tablet and mobile experiences.
This workshop will outline why prototyping is an essential part of the emerging world of tablet and mobile experience design. You’ll learn the underlying design principles and design conventions of Natural User Interfaces (NUIs), animated transitions and the interaction design language that is emerging as touchscreen devices become commonplace. You’ll also learn how and why to cultivate the two most important skills necessary for creating compelling tablet and mobile experiences: a curiosity for context and ruthless editing.
May 25 - STEVE KRUG
Do-It-Yourself Usability Testing: The Workshop
Usability testing is the single most valuable thing you can do to improve a Web site, a Web application, or a piece of software, and not nearly enough of it gets done. In this day-long workshop, Steve Krug, author of Don't Make Me Think and Rocket Surgery Made Easy, will teach you how to do your own low-cost/no-cost testing that's simple enough to make it a routine part of your design process.
