Brian Thurston Bralczyk is a passionate advocate for elegant, user-centered design. His work focuses on new ideas and new ways of thinking about current products. His ultimate goal is to create awesome, personalized experiences that provide just what the user needs, exactly when they need it, on any device.
If users really like your app, they’re not using it from any single device. They’re visiting from their desktop at work, their phone on the train, and their tablet at home (and maybe even their watch, their glasses, their TV…you get the point). Your design needs to be elegant and consistent on all platforms, adjusting to meet their different contexts, and take advantage of their different capabilities. This workshop is about designing complete experiences that take visitors from one device to another, and back again.
You’ll leave with a solid understanding of the planning it takes to ensure your work is successful in today’s world of anytime, anywhere products. We’ll talk about the importance of flexible content creation and preparation, and special considerations involved in designing for touch and emerging interfaces like voice command. And we’ll finish with a look forward at the impact wearable devices, the internet of things, and future tech will have on the UX design work we do today.
