What we’re about
Hey there! 📚
Come hang with us every month for UX book chats and socializing. If you're into human-centered design, HCI, product design, etc, we'd love for you to join us. Each month, we pick a book or article to dive into, post it here, and meet in person to talk about it. Give it a read, or just skim if you're short on time — no pressure! All are welcome to connect with our Chicago UX community.
Got a cool UX story or some insights of your own? Share away! We're all ears for new topics to dive into or new meeting locations to try. Hope to see ya soon! ✌️👓
How are books selected? It depends! We listen to suggestions from members and we also pick based on what's new and trending. You can find the list of books we have read here.
Do you have ✨Instagram✨?
Omgosh yes, we post excerpts from the books & take polls on what book we should read next. Follow us!
Do I need to read the book to attend?
Nope! We will have a few questions for the group to kick things off. We're a social group and we like to talk shop about all things UX. The book topics are a great icebreaker for us and there's always something new to learn!
How do you decide where to hold events?
Member recommendations and word of mouth. We are always looking for new and fun event spaces. You can find a list of the awesome businesses that have hosted us previously here.
Upcoming events (1)See all
- Creative AI @ 18711871, Chicago, IL
Hi UX folks! I am hosting a Creative AI event at 1871, and I would love to extend the invitation to connect with this awesome group of UX and product folks.
I will share a high level walkthrough of how creative AI applications generate new images (and how that makes copyright protection difficult), and walkthrough a Midjourney project aimed at experimenting with creating images through Stable Diffusion.
I will also share how I use AI in my day-to-day for problem solving as Director of Experience at Storygrounds, where I am responsible for all things UX design, research, and brand development.
Hope to see you all there!
