Topics:


From Application to Interview: How to get a Great UX Job

Mobile as a UX Driver

Jon Fox presents: Showcasing how the user experience movement of simple design, quick data consumption and connectivity is driven by the rise in mobile devices, small screen applications and on-the-go mobility.

Jon Fox

Director of User Experience / Mobile Interaction Design, Love It, LLC

In Jon's own words, "Creating a world that is simple and usable, I design mobile, tablet and web products that bridge the gap between user experience, visual design, business strategy and technical implementation to create a synonymous brand ecosystem across screens.

My background in UX began with interactive entertainment design at Paramount Pictures and grew into a focus on designing simple, innovative and feature rich products. I have a passion for bringing technology solutions to everyday users and developing products that make a difference for people."

About our venue host & sponsor:




We’re the only medical office software makers dedicated to serving the small medical practice. We’re a driven group of really dedicated, really upbeat people (stop by our office any time and see) inspired by the belief that, with the right tools and support, small practices can do big things.

    Excellent presentations. Both helped to qualify and quantify what and why we do what we do. And probably helped us towards doing an even job at it.

    Not sure I have been to this exact location, how is parking? Use the garage or is there a lot? I remember a lot of construction in the area.

    February 22, 2013

    • David N.

      The construction on the parking lot is done: - Park in the outdoor parking lot.
      - Walk towards the Plaza Deck and follow signs to Marketplace Café.
