The (cr)UX of Design: Building for Feelings: SCV Startup #12

  • September 17, 2012 · 7:00 PM

We've all navigated the best, worst, and downright ugliest of websites - from a clean and simple interface to a confusing and clunky....something rather. We also know the feelings these interfaces invoke. Sometimes we can navigate a site like a knife through warm butter. Other times we're angrily pounding the keys and mumbling to ourselves. Keeping your users engaged is critical and the process of a charming design flow isn't as easy as we may think.

So what makes for a great user experience? Let's talk about it. We'll touch on the different specializations of design, how to conduct effective usability testing, staying lean with the BML methodology, and, of course, what all of those ridiculous acronyms mean.

Also: We're going to demo 3 products internal to the group.

It's a BYOB-everage event.

      Great example, Jay! Taking "oops" momentum out of the scroll. Brilliant feature for aggressive flick scrollers like myself :)

    Great content on the important points to engage and captivate the user. Brian did a nice job educating everyone and opening dialogues.

    Yikes! An emergency came up and will not be able to attend the event. I will tune in later in a couple of days to check out the streaming video on this event tonight on your web site. I'll be there in spirit!

    The event looks great. People often overlook or over-emphasize the value of UX. However, I have "higher" priorities with the Jewish High Holiday of Rosh Hashannah.

      No worries, my friend. We will be streaming the event from SCV Startup.com. It's going to be a content rich event.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
