Details

Visual-artist-turned-UX/UI-designer is an increasingly common career trajectory. We'll explore why this trend is happening, and examine how artistic practice involves stewardship of data sets. Whether you're an artist who'd like to pivot into UX/UI, a leader or recruiter in search of fresh approaches to product thinking, or a UXer who wants to think more like an artist in your day-to-day work, you'll come away with practical suggestions you can put into practice as soon as you’d like.

In her independent practice, she treats product design as a conceptual art medium. Page holds a BA from Bard College and an MFA from Rhode Island School of Design.
