We've scheduled the next UX Café for Thursday 12th December 6.30pm at the same space as last time, Shoreditch Works Village Hall in Hoxton Square. We urge you to grab a ticket asap, they sell out like hot cakes :)
It'll be a similar structure to previous events if you've been before. We'll see two startups pitch their single UX issue to our panel of 3 design experts for feedback. It'll be opened up to the audience to give advice, then we'll hear some UX/startup related talks from key minds in the industry, shortly followed by the usual beer, pizza and networking.
If you're new to the group, welcome! We really hope to see you can join us on the 12th
We've got 10 x UI Stencils worth $29 each to raffle away on the night. Bring along a business card to enter, winners will be drawn from a hat!
Christmas goodies all round, too!
We're delighted to have the brilliant Aziz Musa join us for the last UX Café of the year. Aziz was the highlight for many at the recent Mind the Product conference and we're lucky to have him share his insights and unique style with us.
Most recently Aziz was Commercial Director at Moonpig.com/PhotoBox. Prior to this he's worked for Lastminute .com, holiday autos, Travelocity and a host of other companies in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. Currently he's Digital Director of Pegasus, an Integrated Communications Consultancy.
We'll also be joined by Michel Jansen, who'll be talking (ranting?) about why UX is not UI.
Michel helps companies improve the UX of their products at Syzygy, where he works as a User Experience Architect. Previously, he worked at the UX Lab of Siemens Corporate Research and more recently at London-based startup Lokku, where he was UX lead for property search engine Nestoria.
On the panel:
• David Hawdale founder & UX lead at Hawdale Associates
• Eewei Chen, News International & Author of 101 Design Ingredients To Solve Big Tech Problems
• Jenny Grinblo UX Designer at Future Workshops
• Pact Coffee
• Pick Event
