UX Solutions Contest Extravaganza

An exercise in creativity and collaboration! Make some friends, hang out, and have fun, all while learning about the UX solution crafting process. We'll be breaking up into teams and competing for 1 hour to make the most awesome, fun, random solution using the mystery set of user stories provided. Each site will need mockups, and a short explanation of how each user need is met in order to win, so everyone from the most inexperienced user experience aficionados to the most die-hard veterans of UX can participate.


The rough schedule is:

7:00 - 7:10 Introduction to the activity and group assignments

7:15 - 7:45 Group work

7:50 - 8:25 Solutions presentations

8:25 - 8:30 Activity wrap up

If folks want to mingle afterward, mingling to follow at the Lucky Lab NW at 1945 Northwest Quimby Street.

    Hi all! I am in the process of prepping for tomorrow's meetup at OpenSourcery (1636 NW Lovejoy Street, ground floor) at 7pm. The tool we'll be using for mockups is Cacoo (http://cacoo.com), as it's fairly simple to use and should be accessible to just about everybody. If you're a go-getter, feel free to dink around with it in advance of the meetup.
