Steve Tengler - 25 User Experience Lessons from Hollywood

  • Apr 24, 2013 · 6:30 PM

Gather, meet, chat, and eat food provided by Groupon

7:00pm
25 User Experience Lessons from Hollywood
presented by Steve Tengler (@tenglers)

As previously said best by Steve Jobs, “The broader one’s understanding of the human experience, the better designs we will have.” And the better the design, the more your company will thrive. But how can we clarify to our non-User Experience coworkers some basics of User Experience? The easiest and obvious point of reference is pop culture; something to which we all can relate.

Steve Tengler, Director of User Experience at Altia Inc, will provide a fistful of UX lessons with a Hollywood foundation for the collective digestion of your coworkers. Practitioners and novices alike will enjoy this fun-filled-yet-educational evening of cinematic analogies.

8:30pm
Head over to a local watering hole for continued conversation and drinks

    The presentation was great. I think every person in every field should know about User Experience.

    Very clever hook into talking about the principles of UX. One of my favorites was Tom Hankes and Wilson in Castaway, and this launched into a discussion of personas.

    Entertaining, an interesting perspective from which to view the somewhat esoteric field of User Experience Design.
