Are you curious to learn how people are using the principles of User Experience Design to solve an interesting array of on and off-screen challenges?

Find out how participating at hackathons can inform and enhance your work as a design practitioner. Hear how a copywriter turned UX designer solves complex problems designing for prison inmates and their visitors. And see the work of a designer who synthesizes free government data and images into beautiful interactive experiences in the museum space.

UX in [physical, social, urban, cultural, written, interactive, storytelling] Space!

He is honing his mastery of Design in order to take over the world create an informationally efficient world with an iron fist subtle shifts in cultural engineering. Eric dreams about ontologies and facilitated serendipity, and in his spare time he hangs around at hackathons and dabbles in experimental dating.

Designing for Inmates (or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Icon), Jess Zak

From persuading a 3-year-old to put on his shoes, to crafting the perfect sentence that sums up the benefits of data recovery, to designing user interfaces for inmates, Jess has worn a number of creative hats over the course of her career. With 6 years of copywriting and 2 years of design experience, she currently creates easy-to-understand communication solutions for those incarcerated in secure facilities and their loved ones. When not designing, she enjoys teaching children the inner balance needed for cycling.

Wanna buy a satellite?, Ulrika Andersson

Ulrika Andersson is an interaction designer and content strategist with dozens of pieces in our best-known Science Centers: including the Exploratorium, Chabot Space and Science Center and The Science Museum of London. Her latest work is an exhibition called Touch the Sun, commissioned by Chabot Space and Science Center and supported by NASA's Living with a Star program. It includes a user interface allowing museum visitors to access data from NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory, a telescope in orbit collecting data from the Sun. In addition she will show Galileo Drawings: a desktop and mobile app for user studies, based on Galileo's Sunspot Drawings from 1611.
