The purpose of this group is to help elevate the practice of user research in the design and development community. You should join us if you have to write about, design, or develop applications for your company or customers, or you're a consultant in any business space. We teach and explore the power of user-centric, design thinking practices that lead to focused and accessible applications and websites.
So then, for the first ever UX & User Research Meetup, we'll get to know each other, talk about our goals and things we'd like to learn about, and take it from there. I'll tell you my vision for the group and what I'd like for us to accomplish in the coming months. The delayed timeline is because I'm relocating back to Cincy from DC. I arrive on Feb 8 and will need a little time to regain my midwest bearings. :)
You don't have to bring anything with you except a willingness to participate and get to know your Cincinnati peers. We'll be meeting in the historic Mohawk Building, which is a very cool live work space where - yep - I live and work. Cocktail hour afterwards for those who want to stay.
For entry, you'll just find me on the keypad out front of 2139 Central Parkway - not Central Ave, that has tripped up a few people - and I buzz you in. ****Important!!! When you come in the lobby door, walk straight back to the white door in the left corner and push that open. If you wait too long, that one will lock so make haste. Come up the steps to the loft lobby and there we'll be.
I look forward to meeting you and leading this group for you!
See you soon,
