Follow us on Twitter for updates. You can also RSVP on Facebook.
- Paulo Zoom: Words of Matter
Words are living things. We shape them with our collective usage, and we perceive them differently as we change. As humans, they’re our interface with each other, and as designers, they’re our most essential tool.
In this talk, Paulo will discuss how caring about words, through proper copywriting and typography, plays a fundamental part in interface design.
Paulo designs websites. He’s working on The Manual and XOXO. That’s not his real name.
- Hany Rizk: UX & Product: How lean can you go?
F**k it, ship it they say — but does that also apply when you're working on a completely new product? This talk will revolve around releasing a Minimal Viable Product and all the complications that come with it: How do you know when your MVP is ready, and is less really more?
Hany is a UX and Interaction Designer driven by minimalism, product strategy and bringing interaction beyond the screen. As a pianist with a passion for music, design, arts and humanities, Hany mixes those sources of inspiration with the technical challenges he faces to design intuitive and innovative solutions that are fun to use, shaken not stirred!
