Event description
Learn to tackle complex UX challenges with OOUX and the ORCA process—a framework for crafting naturally intuitive UX.

About this Event

It's going to be too hot to go outside anyway!

Join me for this two-day weekend-warrior bootcamp will transform your process for synthesizing UX research into simple, elegant structure. You’ll learn a repeatable, rigorous, scalable framework that will help you gracefully transition from research into design.

***The Bootcamp comes with a $497 coupon code that you can put toward the next OOUX Certification Program, while spots last. There are only 25 spots for the fall cohort. As soon as you sign up for this bootcamp, you will receive the discount code for the Certification Program. Make sure to get your spot ASAP!***

WHAT IS OOUX?

Object-Oriented UX is a digital design philosophy that respects the fact that people think in objects. Our brains have evolved to recognize solid objects that adhere to the laws of physics. But digital environments are not beholden to the laws of physics, which can wreck havoc on our users’ ability to understand them.

OOUX gives you a new set of principles so you can create naturally intuitive apps, websites, and software. With these principles, you'll avoid designing objects that are too abstract or visually inconsistent. The best part? Intuitive objects are not only easier for users to understand, they are easier to design and build, too.

Hundreds of UX Designers trained by Sophia have been implementing OOUX within their organizations: Facebook, Instagram, Mastercard, Delta Airlines, Lowe’s, and Google, just to name a few.

DAY 1: AGENDA

12-2:30pm: INTERACTIVE LECTURE: fundamentals of the OOUX philosophy. Learn how to identify four massive UX fails and how OOUX helps prevent them. (With all new examples and more demonstrations on how to fix Shapeshifters, Masked Objects, Broken Objects, and Isolated Objects!)

2:30-5pm: INTRO TO THE ORCA PROCESS! Learn the ropes of identifying Objects, Relationships, Calls-to-Action, and Attributes. Understand the four rounds of ORCA: Discovery, Requirements, Prioritization, and Sketching.

DAY 2: AGENDA

12-2pm: ORCA ROUND 1: Discovery

2-3pm: ORCA ROUND 2: Requirements (Advanced Concepts!)

3-4pm: ORCA ROUND 3: Prioritization

4pm-5pm: ORCA ROUND 4: Sketching.

End the day sketching your design, based on the solid architecture you’ve built over the last two days. Come back to work on Monday morning with a whole new toolset for drilling deep into the structure of design.
