Mobile UX Workshop: Prototyping & Storytelling [soldout]

Communication is an integral part of the user experience design process, and as part of being a UXer, how well we communicate this is the real ground work needed to connect our design ideas and requirements to the people who are actually using the product.

This workshop will outline why prototyping is an essential part of the emerging world of tablets and mobile experience design, and how pairing it with effective storytelling will help you fight the struggle of communicating your wealth of information so everyone just 'gets' it.

You'll learn underlying mobile design principles and design conventions that is emerging as these devices become commonplace. In addition, you'll learn a wide variety of hands-on prototyping methods that can be applied to your design process. You'll receive tactical, hands-on instruction to turn your ideas into interactive prototypes with speed and confidence.

Topics covered will include:
• Basic mobile UX design principles
• Designing for multiple scales
• Understanding mobile use contexts
• Tips for wireframing & user testing
• Sketching techniques
• Paper prototyping
• List of resources for further learning

Expect hands-on design explorations, group ideation and the opportunity to make the abstract future of user experience design a little more fun. This is a hands-on workshop, which means you'll be working with scissors, markers and such. I shouldn't have to tell you not to run with them. You won't need a laptop, but you're welcome to bring one.

    Vince is a fantastic presenter! Material presented was engaging, interesting & thought-provoking. As a new UXer, Vince inspired me to want to learn more about UX and applying best user practices, especially for mobile.

    Vince is a terrific communicator. I liked that we didn't work on anyone's particular pet product, but engaged as a group on sample projects. The content was just what I personally needed.

    The workshop aspect of this meet-up is what makes it exciting. Being able to work with others of different backgrounds and experience is an amazing opportunity to learn.

    I was reading my feeds and ran across this.
    http://mobile.smashingmagazine.com/2012/06/07/sketching-a-new-mobile-web/

    It is completely inline w/ today's workshop. It outlines some pretty good exercises that will help your group to use sketching to home in on mobile interactions and interface design. It is also nice that it outlines excercise tiems and group divisions in the process. This helps to timeline the process and create necessary dialogs to get dynamic results from your group.

    Hello everyone. The good news is that I'm happy to hear & see many people wanting to participate in this workshop.. the bad news however is that I can't :/

    The way this workshop is setup, having anymore than 25 people would push out the 3hr time slot. I will poll the group to see when another date will work for everyone interested that couldn't make this date — and again, that will be capped at 25 spots too. All future workshops won't have this limitation, it just depends on the topic.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
