Context

• Cacoo is an online wire-framing / prototyping tool handcrafted by a Japanese agile software dev start-up, Nulab Inc

• Nulab Inc. HQ in Fukuoka, Japan and locations in SE Asia

• After reaching 1.5 million + Cacoo users this past year, decided to open a new location in NYC six months ago to connect with users and innovate for them

• Majority of users (30%+) use Cacoo for wire-framing, so this year we are focusing on a major overhaul of the UX/UI for our product to make it easier and more pleasant to wireframe collaboratively

Challenge

As a UX Designer / Developer / Creative type, imagine that your are collaborating in a distributed product team (some remote, some in-office), using Cacoo to wireframe a website redesign of the Cacoo stencil store.

• How do you innovate for the agile product team to create a more fun, easy, collaborative online wire-framing/prototyping experience?

• How do you combine unique Japanese and US product design and development?

Benefits for attendees

• Opportunity to showcase in your portfolio

• Prizes for winning team's deliverables: Will be featured in our company newsletter (and maybe in our Cacoo site too), Nulab swag

• Opportunity to influence the UX of a tool for UX/Product Teams (for UX by UX)

• Potential employment opportunity with Nulab

• Opportunity to connect with other UXers
