What is Design Jam Oxford?

Design Jam Oxford is a one-day design session, during which people will team up to tackle engaging User Experience (UX) challenges. Similar to developer ‘hackdays’ the aim is to get UX professionals, designers, developers (and more) together to learn and collaborate with each other while working on actual design problems. The sessions champion open-source thinking & sharing and are non-profit, run by local volunteers.

Who should attend?
Anybody who would like to practice their research, brainstorming, sketching or collaboration skills. Interaction designers, UX researchers, Information Architects, web and graphic designers. Students and experienced practitioners.

What happens at a Design Jam?
On the day, attendees assign themselves to a group based on the skills they contribute and what they’d like to learn. (Instead of the session grid well-known from barcamps, Design Jams use a 'team grid'). The teams are giving a design challenge that they tackle by doing research, sketching, guerilla testing and other UX techniques.

Teams share their process and ideas halfway through. The day finishes with final presentations. Outcomes could be a prototype, sketches, storyboards or videos - whatever communicates the idea best.

What happens to the ideas we come up with?
To facilitate the free exchange of ideas, all outputs, visualizations and other contributions you make during the day must be contributed under the Creative Commons Attribution (CC-BY) license. All materials will be shared on the Design Jam wiki, and teams will have to write a short blogpost about their design process and idea.
