Details

It is 2018 and we are back with the annual event of World Usability Day!! We're very excited to host this event in Saudi Arabia, on the 6th of November.
There will be a bunch of fun and interesting activities that evolve around creating new good designs or enhancing the evil designs.
The theme for this year is “Design For Good Or Evil” : Design has a huge impact on the usability and usefulness of anything and everything. We know that user-centered design produces usable products and services. Whether or not something is usable has significant potential to make our day better or worse. Sometimes, our lives even depend on it".

"IN 2018, LET’S FOCUS ON WHAT WE CAN DO IN CREATING BOTH GOOD DESIGN AND PREVENTING THE DEVELOPMENT OF BAD DESIGN".

The agenda of awesomeness:
A presentation and debate on “Design For Good Or Evil”.
Analyze the usability of different software products.
Participate in hands on activities where you will get a chance to use different materials to produce products with good designs.
Did we mention this is free and includes light refreshments?

And much much more, but most important of all, this is a great opportunity to meet and network with some of the most exciting, innovative and creative personalities in the city. So come one, come all, share the details with your friends and co-workers. We can't wait to see you!
We look forward to seeing you all in Riyadh to celebrate World Usability Day :)
