IxDA Munich is proud to present Alessia Rullo, UX team lead at Hewlett-Packard Spain, in Munich.

Experience and Interaction design may radically change the way an organization addresses innovation, technology and product design:

  • The continuous focus on the human beings that will use the final products.
  • The capability of shaping user experience that make people feel rewarded and inspired in their work.
  • The constant use of imagination to envision new aesthetics and ways of doing things.

All this is about the added value that an Experience Driven process may bring into an IT organization. HP Designjet SmartStream will be the specific case study developed at HP Inc. Barcelona that will be presented and discussed. Alessia will bring the audience through the design process of this project, sharing insights, inspiration and open questions: how to make the user experience a key business and innovation variable?

We’re excited to announce that Indi Young will be introducing her new book: Practical Empathy – For Collaboration and Creativity in Your Work.

Conventional product development focuses on the solution. Empathy is a mindset that focuses on people, helping you to understand their thinking patterns and perspectives. Practical Empathy will show you how to gather and compare these patterns to make better decisions, improve your strategy, and collaborate successfully.

For the past 20 years, Indi Young has been pioneering ways to understand customers and employees in order to support them better. Most organizations have developed awareness and expertise at gathering big data–the numbers that track what and how people have done things. These same organizations, however, are inexpert at understanding why. The messy and divergent reasoning and motivations that drive people’s decisions are what Indi helps you tune in. She is expert at gathering the thoughts that lie deeper than simple preferences, opinions, and desires. And she is expert at helping you solidify patterns and sort through the wavelengths to focus on particular channels so you can support people in more powerful ways.

Design in motion, the new frontier of interaction design with Antonio de Pasquale

Animation can explain behaviours better than thousand of words that’s why interaction designer should learn from motion designer.

Technological advances have allowed, in the last few years, a big step forward in the dynamic behaviors and interactions patterns that we used to do with software in the past. Motion is one of the key element of this change but how can we imagine & sketch the way something feels & reacts? Starting from the basic of motion design, we’ll discover a set of “standard” motion patterns and how we can sketch & use them in a design project to increase affordance, to simplify complex interactions and to give a new dynamic brand identity to our products.

Speaker

Antonio de PasqualeAntonio De Pasquale is a Senior Interaction Designer and information architect in Frog specializing in digital user experience. He believes that designing the interaction is the most important part in communication and is fascinated by how you can communicate through movement and gestures. He has worked on numerous digital projects ranging from the field of web-tv, e-commerce, healthcare, online newspapers, corporate website to mobile and tablet applications and he participated in teaching activities at SUPSI and Politecnico di Milano.
