We had a fantastic day of short talks at UXBristol this year.
Hopefully we managed to capture the essence of the event despite the online format – fingers crossed that we can get back to a face to face event next year.
If you missed the event, you can catch up by watching the recording of the entire livestream or jump straight into specific talks as below.
This talk is about the steps you can take to make sure you can offer the best, localised experience to your customers in different markets. It covers why it is important to have a clear holistic understanding of your global audiences and their context. Practical tips will be provided to guide you through this process not only to inform your design, but also your marketing or other business strategies.
Ben Holliday – Asking design questions
Design questions can be the real practical superpower of impactful UX and design work in all parts of an organisation.
In this talk, Ben Holliday will explore how anyone can start to ask design questions in the places and situations that they work in.
A good presentation could get your design approved, or quickly dismissed if you don’t present it right.
In this talk, Flow will outline six useful steps to successfully present design work to non-designers.
Kat Husbands – Imposter syndrome in User Centred Design
Imposter syndrome: an insidious, inner critic. At best it sucks the joy out of a job well done, and at worst it can cripple your career.
Kat surveyed 100 user centred designers about their experiences of imposter syndrome and is here to share what she learned about where it comes from, who it affects the most, and of course how to beat it.
Tom Ridley – Beyond the Beeps: Designing with Sound
Tom demystifies the field of Product Sound (think: Alexa, your Microwave, that person on the train with their keyboard clicks turned on), and provide some fundamental principles, ideas and techniques, such that any design practitioner, without a shred of musical ability, could begin to explore product sound and put it to test.
Abby Covert – How to diagram
This talk aims to help rid the world of bad diagrams by teaching the purpose, process and craft of diagramming. Because your diagrams might suck, but they don’t have to.
