There will be two presentations:
1) "From icons to product — an evolution of design at Ustwo"
Lars Rosengren from UsTwo (London) will talk about how the perspective on design/UX has changed over the past few years. UsTwo is a fiercely independent digital product studio, based in London, Malmo, New York and Sydney. They do fun things like the games Whale Trail and Monument Valley, but they also serve a range corporate clients and more recently build and launch their own ventures.
2) "The good in the bad"
Erik Wedeward will talk about how bad usability can lead to positive effects for the user. Erik works as a design researcher at Orange Labs Tokyo, a research and innovation office for Orange, the major European Telecoms company.
The presentations will be in English.
Then there will be networking until 9pm. As usual it's at Gengo (thanks Gengo). It's an open, inclusive group. Anyone interested in UX is welcome.
