November 14, 2019 — Design has been synonymous with “making things pretty”, more artificial than functional, but the popularity of UX and design thinking has done a lot to break that stereotype in the last few years. One of the ways to evangelize a better user experience to your product owners and managers is to assign money value to your design improvements.
In this talk I’ll show you a few easy examples of how to do that.

It’s easy to get caught up in bias when it comes to a project that you’re closely involved with. One way to get around this involves inviting unbiased third parties to try using your website, while narrating their experience. You may be surprised to see the major differences that come to light in terms of what you expected to happen versus how people actually navigate your website.
This process, known as user testing, can quickly become expensive, but it doesn’t have to be. With experience designing websites for 15+ years, UX enthusiast Maddy Osman will provide an actionable process (complete with tool suggestions) for performing user tests on a budget.

October 9, 2019 — When we think about UX, we’re often too focused on fonts, colors, and flow to think about microcopy – those small bits of text that guide users through almost every part of a web interface. These words may be tiny, but they can make a significant difference in the usability of your design and even affect your site’s conversion rates.
Key takeaways. In this talk, I will share copywriting and communication tips that will immediately improve your user interface microcopy, such as error messages and interface instructions, so your users experience less frustration and more delight.
Talk attendees will get a quick introduction to branding and communication principles, basic UX principles, and how to evaluate effective copy in website flows. They will also see real examples of before and after situations where simple changes made a big difference and how and where to apply the same changes to their own sites.
October 9, 2019 — We all want our sites to be clear, beautiful and easy to use… But how? Well, while the Design and UX practice is wild and complex, there are simple guidelines we can follow to clean our layouts and start getting the taste of a good user experience.
To do this we’ll explore by comparison examples of ‘fixes’ that we can apply to our designs, to better communicate, such as: alignment, color and content hierarchy.
