Worum es bei uns geht

The London chapter of IxDA extends the organisation's mission to "improve the human condition by advancing the discipline of Interaction Design", through community, sharing, self-organisation and contribution to the practice and development of Interaction Design.

We often run events on every last Wednesday of each month on IxD topics that are at the intersection of emergent design practices, novel uses of technology, and human behaviour.

The London chapter of IxDA is currently organised by a small team of passionate local leaders - Jason Mesut and Boon Yew Chew, with help from local volunteers.

We hope you can join us and be part of this community.

About the Interaction Design Association:

IxDA adopts an open and participatory "unorganisation" model with no cost of membership and the organisation itself is dependent on its members to serve the needs of the community.

Designing for an uncertain future


Tickets available (for free) at 12pm (BST) 20th May a week before the event as usual. Zoom details will be sent via meetup messages prior to the event. --- The event --- We are back this month with another Strategic Design themed evening. Shorter and sharper than before. COVID-19 is an awakening call; we see vividly how it's changing our behaviours and the world around us. As designers, we are curious to know what we can do, how we design for this unprecedented time, and even more importantly, foresee what kind of future that we are designing for. Our speakers will go back to the basics - Needs, Insights and Foresights, sharing their point of view to navigate through this ambiguity and better equipped to design for the future to come. This event has been curated by Jill Lin and will feature speakers (bio below) with different perspectives in this space, talking about the key to design for today & prepare for tomorrow, design and value in the post normal futures, and how we move forward in the face of adversity. --- Our Speakers & Curator --- Jill Lin, Bain & Company (Guest Curator) Jill is a strategic and visionary ex-Experience Director with over a decade of experience.
