Apple's products have been the inspiration for many aspiring designers. Many folks say that their products are "beautiful". But what does that really mean?
Speaker: Vu Nguyen, www.barely5th.com
Known for his highly analytical approach to design and most recently as the Director of Design at INRIX Consumer Mobile, Vu is a respected UX designer in the design community. He started his career at The New York Times, where he won multiple design awards for projects that he researched, designed and built. He then led design teams at nbcnews.com, expedia.com and INRIX. Vu has expansive knowledge in news and media, e-commerce and mobile applications. His content-driven, user-focused and systematic
approach to product design has helped many major technology corporations reinvent their products. You can read his thoughts on design at www.biofusiondesign.com.
User experience design is a combination of visual aesthetic, ease of use, and human psychology. Yes, the first part really matters. However, the latter two elements are far too often ignored when people think about the design of a product.
In this talk, I will try to scratch the surface on how they play into design and people's perception of "beauty".
