Event Details

User Experience (or UX) is one of the key pillars of digital design. It is an umbrella term that encompasses a range of disciplines and skills which are relevant to anyone embarking on a creative project that involves interacting with users or simply with a passion for great design. 
UX may not be a label that you'd apply to yourself, but if you're involved in producing digital products – whether personal projects or professional apps – then you may find you're already carrying out some of the roles that a UXer would. 
This course is aimed at anyone interested in exploring the principles of User Experience practice. You may have a background in graphic design or software development, you might be a student or professional in a related field. Whatever your motivation, you want to learn more about how digital products can be shaped for people.
This one evening taster of the kind of tasks, techniques and skills that the user experience professional requires will help you plot your course, guided by one of the UK’s most prominent UX practitioners.

Martin Belam is Principal Consultant at Emblem, a digital consultancy he founded in 2012. He was formerly lead user experience and information architect for the Guardian, having worked in digital product development for over a decade for companies including the BBC, Vodafone and Sony.
