WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 13, "THE STORYTELLERS"
People are natural storytellers, and as interaction designers, it's our job to navigate the relationship between people and the objects they use every day. Is there a story that is unfolding between them? Do interfaces tell a story? Should we be designing with a narrative in mind? Join us to hear short lectures from four very different perspectives on the story and our role in it. Featured speakers:
About the Speakers
