October XR Design Salon

WeWork 1411 4th Ave

October - Topic TBD We're still working on content for the October XR Design Salon at WeWork Labs in downtown Seattle, will post details as soon as we have them. As usual, we'll have plenty of time for questions, discussion, and connections. Please contact us if you can host or sponsor a future salon at [masked]. Join us on the Seattle VR Slack #designsalon channel to discuss the format for the meetup and how you see design in VR/AR/MR/XR. If you're new to Seattle VR Slack go to https://seattle-vr-slack.herokuapp.com/ to join. Or comment at the blog. Please email us if you want to post a blog about your experiences at the salon or about design in XR. We're also looking for food & beverages sponsors at our upcoming salons. DESIGN SALON DESCRIPTION Seattle VR and PlutoVR are hosting the Design Salon monthly meeting to provide a forum for UX professionals, designers, researchers, students and VR/AR/XR/MR enthusiasts to deeply discuss current literature, practices, research and tech from a design perspective. We’ll focus on a number of design issues which are unique to immersive environments, but look at each one in depth and leave time for discussion. Concepts central to UX design, user research, storytelling, collaboration, cognition and related disciplines will be applied to both the hottest and the most overlooked areas vital to designing usable immersive realities. Bring your curiosity! Salon Goal: To examine how design choices affect the user experience in VR/AR/MR/XR. “What are the boundaries of Design?” “What are the boundaries of problems?” - Charles Eames TRANSPORTATION Bus: Most buses stop within blocks of this downtown Seattle location. Parking is NOT available in the building, but street parking and garages are nearby. Our meetup is safe and welcoming. Anyone and everyone is invited!
