DESCRIPTIONUX has become a vital component of mission-critical “bet-the-farm” projects. But you can’t just start designing screens. UX doesn’t happen on a screen – it happens in the mind. Join us as I describe Emergent UX – a process that goes beyond traditional UX techniques by using psychology to deeply understand what is in your users’ mind (or minds) and applying that to UX design. Learn about the 6 minds, what it takes to seduce them, and how we use the Emergent UX process when working on large high-visibility projects.
