Full Stories with Gregg Bernstein

As designers and developers, we're fortunate to work today with a wealth of information. In his talk, MailChimp UX Design Researcher Gregg Bernstein will tell stories about the role of context in research. He'll talk about the ecosystem of big data, individuals, and context, and how easy it is to miss the forest for the trees.

GREGG BERNSTEIN - MailChimp UX Design Researcher

Gregg Bernstein is Senior Design Researcher for MailChimp UX. He spends his days listening, thinking, collaborating, writing, listening some more, and then sharing his findings with others. Since 1996, he’s designed for clients and taught for university students.

Gregg earned his MFA in Graphic Design from the Savannah College of Art & Design, where—for some reason—he became fascinated with the presentation of tax return forms and digital legal agreements. He’s been hooked on UX research ever since. He resides with his family in Athens, Georgia. In his spare time, he runs early, often, and far.

    Hi All,
    I got this email on 8th Aug 2014 and event moved to Sep 18th
    "J. Cornelius changed the venue and date for Full Stories with Gregg Bernstein.
    New date and time: Thursday, September 18,[masked]:30 PM
    Old date and time: Tuesday, August 12,[masked]:30 PM"

    And when i looked at the event page it looks like the event is happening tomorrow and just the venue changed. Just wanted to make sure if this is the case.
