Event description

Description

Our first event of the new year! As usual, we have four amazing presenters who are bringing their practical tips on how to be a better designer.

OUR PRESENTERS:

Darrell Estabrook | Independent UX Consultant

Darrell Estabrook

Topic: “One Simple Question”


We are easily distracted from our priorities when designing digital products and websites, but you can cut through the clutter. Darrell will show how asking one simple question can strengthen your design decisions every day and improve what you create.

Darrell Estabrook designs digital experiences, and has done so since 1996 when dial-up was a thing. He works with clients and designers to hone in on their project’s purpose, then design toward it.

Dr. Pollie Barden, PhD | Senior Experience Designer, Olson Digital

Dr. Pollie Barden, PhD

Topic: Death of the Screen: Follow research informing the future of interaction


Keeping up on current trends and business practices are helpful to day to day for current digital products. However, as UX professionals we need to be aware of what is on horizon and be preparing now for how our interactions, access and relationship is going to change in the near future.

Dr. Pollie Barden, PhD is a researcher in human computer interaction with a focus on social issues. Her research centers around working with digitally disenfranchised communities through participatory methods.

Lisa Dance | UX Analyst, Genworth

Lisa Dance

Topic: Designing for Underserved Groups


As technology continues to evolve, designers must ensure the needs of underrepresented groups are captured in the research and design of products and services. Using real-life examples, I'll show the negative impact of ill-conceived technology solutions on minorities and the working poor in banking, recruiting, and healthcare.

A native Richmonder, Lisa's passion for businesses being easy to do business with led her to founding ServiceEase, a consultancy to help small businesses and nonprofits improve customer experiences. Lisa Dance is currently an User Experience Analyst for Genworth, working on its award-winning website.

Sam Poulin

Topic: Designing for Good


We are designing ever more complex systems, and our choices affect real people’s lives. How can we make sure our design decisions are always rooted in helping our users?

Sam Poulin has been designing experiences since 2001 in places like high-end art galleries, start-ups, ad agencies, and IBM. He currently is working at Capital One helping to change banking for good. He is also the current president of Richmond UX.
