I'll be speaking on the topic of Shallow Interaction Design at the IxDA Conference in Helsinki, Finland March 2-4, 2016. In the meantime, I'll be shopping for a heavier winter coat. Looking forward to it! Learn more about the conference here.
I'll be presenting Get the Tech Out of the Way: Shallow Interaction for Enhanced Social Play with Jes Koepfler (@jeskak) at the UXPA Conference in San Diego on Tuesday 6/23 at 11am. Come by and learn how we leveraged shallow design patterns to enhance a disaster resilience role playing game!
I'm excited to announce that Extreme Event, the game I worked on at Intuitive Company, has won the Gold Award from the 2015 Serious Play Awards museums category! Extreme Event is a social game that helps people understand the importance of building community coalitions for disaster resilience. Learn more about my work on the game.
I had the opportunity to collaborate with Jes Koepfler for a guest lecture (remotely) for a group of students at the University of Washington today. At the request of Dr. Jaime Snyder, professor of INFO360 Design Thinking, we walked the class through case studies highlighting Intuitive Company’s research and design process. Students followed up with questions and asked for tips on how to stand out and get hired for a company like IC.
