Topic of the evening:
User Experience Design: the way of the Geek Artist
The best of both worlds. How minimalist design aesthetic and “form becomes function” make apps fast and elegant as well as usable, and how having geek skillz lifts a designer out of the “make it pretty” ghetto in product teams.
About the Speaker:
Dorothy Nelson is a User Experience Design Manager at Google. She has been programming and designing user-focused front end interfaces since the mid 1980s, from Bell Communication Research and Oracle to uber-dot-bomb Webvan, then to eBay (designing the selling experience) and Google. In her spare time, Dorothy enjoys traditional “dirty-hands” arts involving charcoal and ink and the non-traditional art of Silly Putty sculpture, as well as horsing around with her non-artistic but lovable husband and Yellow Labradors.
