A Day of User Experience Design

Join us for a Day of User Experience Design led by Krissy Scoufis of 352 and Justin Davis of Madera Labs. Please note that you must register for this separately. Seating is limited. https://barcamptampa.launchtrack.com/register/day-of-user-experience-design

Exceptional user experience goes beyond a simple checklist of features and meets the exact needs of the customer, without distraction and confusion and makes the user feel focused and empowered. Next comes simplicity and elegance that produce products that are a joy to own and use.

Justin Davis is the founder of Madera Labs, a user experience studio and consultancy which helps companies deliver a remarkable experience to their customers, both on and offline. He is a former Nashville musician and incorporates the value of drama and show while creating his designs. He says he’s in the business of designing “experiences,” in an ongoing effort to “leave an emotional dent.”

Krissy Scoufis believes that as a User Experience Strategist for 352 Media, her focus is to study and evaluate how people feel about the digital products they use and the companies who make them. Understanding user behavior, needs, pain points and context identifies areas of the brand or product that are doing well and areas that need improvement to better meet the needs of the customers.

    I had such a great time! I learned so much about UX, testing, and the real purpose of personas. I had heard the term thrown around a lot but never really understood how we created them. I now know it's from interviews and testing beforehand. I really look forward to the next event and hope there can be plenty more UX-focused meetups soon!

    P.S. Food was AMAZING and I will definitely be making a special trip back just for the mac n' cheese. Such a great choice!

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.
