RICHMOND UX DESIGN SPRINT WORKSHOP

DsgnSprint-Nov14-EVBRIGHT-Lg3DESCRIPTION

Want to facilitate breakthrough ideas, solve business challenges and validate products with customers? A Design Sprint might just be the answer.

The Design Sprint, originally developed at Google, is a short, time-boxed process for answering critical business questions through design, prototyping, and testing ideas with customers. It is a short, intense effort (a sprint!) conducted by a small, functional team where the results set the direction for the product, service, or feature.

In this workshop we will learn the tools & techniques of the same structured framework that has been used to design, prototype and validate solutions for startups, agencies, and even non-profits. We will be hands-on for 120 minutes using the same activities you would complete during a sprint.

WHO’S THIS WORKSHOP FOR?

Anyone with tough problems to solve – designers, developers, product managers, marketers, content strategists, CEOs/founders, even human resources. The Design Sprint process has been used to solve a wide array of problems from the UX of digital products to wayfinding in a museum to the hiring process at Google.

This will be a fast-paced, intense workshop. While not a requirement, it will be most successful if all participants have at least some familiarity with the Design Sprint process. Google Ventures offers an excellent primer on Design Sprints to help you get familiar.

AGENDA

3:30 – 4:00: Arrive, get settled and warm up (it is a sprint after all!)

4:00 – 6:00: Sprint!

6:00 – 6:30: Cool down and say goodbye

To Be Designed Conf. [Local Viewing]

RUX-TBD-image-web

Once again, RichmondUX will host a local viewing of a Rosenfeld Media virtual conference. As with our previous viewings, those who attended thought watching the online sessions together—and networking before, during and after—featured all the benefits of a larger one-day conference, minus the travel.

It’s been a while since our last meetup, and even longer since our most recent programming. Seating at Gather is limited, so grab your tickets before they go. Whether you are able to join us for the conference or not, please plan to meet up with us afterward starting at 5:30 at a place, well, to be determined. 😉

See below for more details:

What is the “near future” of design? It’s the stuff that’s far out enough to be fascinating, but not so far out that you can’t imagine ever working on it.

To Be Designed features six fantastic speakers who will take you on a tour of six “near-future” topics: the Internet of things, agentive technology, wearables, conversational UI design, designing with robots, and ethics for designing in the AI era.

RUX December – Happy Hour

Dear RUXsters – we are overdue for a meetup! And in addition to saying hi, catching up, and finding out what everyone’s up to, we want to thank everyone for another terrific year! A lot of UX and Design stuff happened in Richmond in 2016, and all of it is worth chatting about over a drink, alcoholic or otherwise.

As with our Happy Hour this past June, we will be meeting at McCormack’s Big Whiskey Grill near the Regency Mall. It’s pretty centrally located, whether you work in West Creek, Glen Allen, the Near West End or Downtown. Plus, as a group dedicated to cultivating experiences, you’ll appreciate Big Whiskey Grill’s atmosphere.

Richmond UX will take care of the food and non-alcoholic beverages. The rest is up to you.

Register via Eventbrite →

We miss seeing everyone, and we hope you can join us. Other than a few announcements, the only thing on the agenda is whatever happens to be on your mind.

When
December 7th, 5:30pm to 7:30pm

Where
McCormack’s Big Whisky Grill
(The one near the Regency Mall, not the one in The Fan)
1420 N. Parham Road
Richmond, VA

We look forward to seeing you there!
