What we're about
Upcoming events (5+)
HOW IT WORKS Every third Thursday (this time it is the 4th Thursday due to Easter) we'll meet in the evening to talk about a UX/UX related design book. It would be great if you get round to actually reading the book; however, if you only manage to read parts of it, that is totally fine, too. We will provide a summary to refresh your memory and to make sure everyone can take part in the discussion. WHAT'S THIS MONTH'S BOOK? Ellen Lupton's 'Design is Storytelling' (more about the book here: https://www.cooperhewitt.org/publications/design-is-storytelling/) From last month's deep dive into the technologies that enable our digital experiences, this month we will explore storytelling to help designers amplify the narrative power of their work. WHAT EXACTLY HAPPENS AT THE UxVIENNA BOOK CLUB? After a short round of introductions, we will jump right in and discuss the book’s main topics. For this, we have some questions prepared–if you get a chance, we would love for you to also think of some questions or topics you want to discuss. WHAT LANGUAGE? Since most UX books are in English, we will mostly stick to English - if everybody speaks German, too, we can mix it up :) HOW ABOUT FOOD AND DRINKS? We will provide some drinks and small snacks. For proper food, we can order dinner at the beginning of the evening. Slides can be found here shortly after the event: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1FPzsZGqlOpTfI94hDNZTZ2WzWuKdd7NF?usp=sharing Your UxVienna Book Club hosts Verena Snurer & Sabine Ballata https://twitter.com/meshcreates https://bekokoro.com
Visual Prototyping is a workshop Angeliki runs for companies and research institutes mostly targeting non-designers who need concept illustrations for their presentations, papers, reports, etc. This time, Angeliki adapts the workshop for product designers, tech people and UX researchers. Visual Prototyping is not about interactive UI prototypes. It is about learning to make better visuals to share your vision or ideas with the open-source vector design software Inkscape. The 2 day version of the workshop is described here: https://www.visualprototyping.com/workshop. In this two-hour Workshop you will get a free minimum viable version of it. Angeliki Angeletou is a UX designer, researcher and occasional illustrator originally from Greece.
Interested in Product Management, User Research or UX Design and an early bird? Please join UxWien Mornings from 8:30 a.m. to 10 a.m once a month on the first Friday. With fireside chats, discussions and breakfast at a unique and hip Viennese café at Freihausviertel called Breakfastclub.
What happens at the UX Vienna Evening Meetup (formerly Interaction Design Stammtisch)? We gather at 6:30pm and supply ourselves with drinks. The meetup will start on time at 7pm: We welcome our first-time visitors and do a round of introduction. We plan tonight's meetup topics. Geeks like myself prepare a talk with slides, and pre-announce it on https://UXvienna.at/ongoing/ or contact the orga-team upfront via [masked]. Others improvise and shout out a subject they want to discuss. Both ways are fine. More at https://UXvienna.at/join/#minitalk We try to make a more or less strict agenda with 2 topics — each time-boxed with 30 minutes. So we will be done with the topics around 8:30pm and have some more casual talks and in-depth-discussions afterwards. We do that in order to keep some focus on content and that nobody is bored with a topic she's not interested in. Collaboratively we document each UX Vienna Evening Meetup at https://UXvienna.at/ongoing/. Check out to see what kept us busy and what you might have missed so far. We do speak English. UX Vienna Evening Meetups are on the 2nd tuesday of every month — 12 times a year. UX Vienna announcements are available at https://meetup.com/UXvienna. In addition you can follow us on https://UXvienna.at and https://twitter.com/UXvienna. We are looking forward to seeing you!
