    Mark Uraine: Designing with the API p3of3

    WordCamp San Diego 2018Speaker: Mark Uraine

    August 17, 2018 — The WordPress REST API is often perceived by designers as something developers talk about in chat groups filled with lines of code. This talk aims to help designers familiarize themselves with the API and grow our computational design skills with its help. We’ll cover what an API is, what it’s used for, and how we can innovate with it.

    Cate Huston, Mark Uraine, John Maeda – Visual Data Using the WordPress API

    WordCamp Europe 2017Speakers: Mark Uraine, John Maeda, Cate Huston

    July 31, 2017 — WordPress 4.7’s integrated REST API just gave us easy access to the public data of millions of sites. We, as designers, can now structure that data in visual ways to build creative solutions, and encourage thought. Let’s learn about APIs, how we can use them, and what we can do with the data that’s available to us from a design perspective.

    Mark Uraine: Designing in the Open

    WordCamp San Diego 2017Speaker: Mark Uraine

    May 9, 2017 — Designing in the open is about sharing your work and progress publicly through the course of a design project. I’ll explain how this works, where to start, and why it’s good practice for all designers. We’ll also discuss how you can give back to the WordPress community through design contributions to Core and WordPress.org.

  • Mark Uraine: Design For Telepathy

    Mark Uraine: Design For Telepathy

    WordCamp Los Angeles 2016Speaker: Mark Uraine

    October 8, 2016 — The transfer of information is paramount in design. Technology has made it possible to consume a mass of information in minimal time – is your design helping the flow of this information, or hindering it? While accessibility for those with challenges is one end of the spectrum, have you been designing for the other end? Have you been designing for telepathy or those with advanced capabilities? This talk will explore the spectrum of accessibility for both the challenged and the more advanced in today’s design.

    Mark Uraine: Design Thinking (thinking like a designer)

    WordCamp San Diego 2016Speaker: Mark Uraine

    June 6, 2016 — Design Thinking is an alternative approach to the problems we’re working to resolve. It focuses on empathy and asking the right questions (which is normally, “why?”) to explore new solutions that may not initially be so obvious. This talk will review the process of Design Thinking and how it applies to our life and to the problems we face regularly. It’s about putting the user first and producing results that fit the user’s desires, needs, and capabilities. This method is rooted in the discipline of human-centered design and promotes a holistic effort to accomplishing everyday tasks. Come learn why Design Thinking isn’t about designing by committee, but rather an integral part to solid results that are understandable, usable, and purposeful.
