Designing with Data at UXPA Boston 2014

by Emily Twaddell

User Experience Conference 2014

May 15, 2014 at 8:00 a.m.
Sheraton Boston Hotel
39 Dalton Street, Boston, MA 02199

The wealth of tools recently released makes it easier to stitch design assets together into “interactive prototypes.” The limiting factor in these tools is that they rely on the static data in your comps.

Join Involution designer-engineer Ben Salinas as he introduces techniques for gathering real data and incorporating that data into comps and prototypes. In a live demo, Ben will discuss techniques for processing data and generating data as well as how to use these techniques to evaluate the success or failure of a design.

This session will help the intermediate or experienced designer expand their design prowess by breathing new life into their stale and static comps. The participant will walk away understanding the tradeoffs around when to choose to incorporate real data and when a static comp can perform just as well. Most importantly, the participant will have been exposed to the tools they need to incorporate these techniques into their day-to-day design work.
