Fancy meeting other women for a good old natter about UX and life in general? Then Ladies that UX is for you. Not got UX in your job title? No problem. If you’re inquisitive, enthusiastic and interested in making the world a better place for users, you’re one of us.
Four great speakers lined up to share their UX experiences as part of Spring Forward http://wespringforward.com/:
George Oates; George has been working online since 1996. The short version? She's a designer, producer, maker; interface design/copy/system at Flickr; invented Flickr Commons, director/designer of Open Library at Internet Archive; art director at Stamen. Now, Good, Form & Spectacle.
George's particular skills lie in designing interfaces people don't have to think about, quickly understanding complex systems, remembering the humans, challenging status quo by asking why a lot, and making people feel comfortable with and excited about change.
Ellen de Vries; Ellen is a content strategist for Clearleft, she works closely with the UX team to provide a consistent experience, she's curious about the finest details of communication, how the words you choose to define your work and motivate your team in the early stages of the project affect the outcome and the product strategy beyond the launch. Ellen is currently working with a major global children's charity, helping them refine their messages and develop consistency across their campaigns. Ellen specialises in brand language and will be talking to us about seeking out the most meaningful language for your user's experience.
Change to speakers due to unforseen circumstances:
NOW: Amy Gooch, an in house manager of a UX team, after her first year in the role she is coming to tell us her journey.
With thanks to Clearleft and all our sponsors for all their support.
