UX Process - Panel Discussion

Q&A panel for your questions regarding the UX Process, followed up with group discussion. Please submit questions to the panel via twitter @UXPittsburgh.

We are very pleased to announce our three UX Panel Members; Chris Carter, Geoff Barnes, & Devan Goldstein!

Chris Carter is the Director of User Experience Design with When he is not spending time with his girlfriend or pot belly pig Daisy, he can be found working with clients all around Pittsburgh. His designs stay out of the way, which means not distracting his client's users. That is something he believes in and strives to accomplish for all of his clients and at work. Built By Simplify; Chris's new site, will be launching early this fall. Keep up to date with what Chris is up to on twitter @BuiltBySimplify or on Dribbble.

Geoff Barnes is Director of User Experience at Elliance, an award-winning, high-craft digital marketing agency in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He's been at Elliance since 2007. Geoff is also a lively public speaker, Alphalab mentor, novice banjo player, occasional blogger, and a very safe driver.


Devan Goldstein works as a Senior Designer at UPMC's Technology Development Center, mostly undertaking user research and UX architecture. Before joining the TDC, he freelanced in UX and strategy, and helped agencies like BarkleyREI, fathom, Mind Over Media, and SW Creatives refine their design and development processes. He writes short stories, essays, and trade articles, links to which may be found at . He lives with his wife and son in Swisshelm Park.

    I work on software development, so discussing web presence and marketing issues were a bit foreign to me.

      We will try to address that at our next meetup and focus more evenly on both web & software, or broader topics! Thanks for the feedback Anne!

      I've assisted in developing pattern libraries and UI flow standards before. Creating a framework that every team member can refer to helps to maintain consistency when you have a large organization.

    I really enjoyed talking with Chris at the last Meetup. I think he'll have some great insights to share with everyone. I also look forward to hearing what Geoff Barnes and Devan Goldstein will have to say.
