Intro to UX Design for Psychologists (and others, too!)
August 29, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm EDT
Curious about UX Design? Join us for our Free Intro to UX Design Workshop!
Today, UX is playing an increasingly important role as a market differentiator for emerging companies. To be a competitive player in the market, companies need to focus on creating a lasting experience around their product.
If you build something awesome, more people will want to use it and keep using it. It’s what allows Apple to charge a premium and sell millions of iPhones, iPads and Macbooks on launch day. It’s what allowed companies like Uber, AirBnB and Tesla to disrupt the century old taxi, hospitality and automotive industries. They completely altered the User Experience.
Once upon a time…
if you heard “design”- then 9 times out of 10 you could assume that it was referring to “graphic design”. But now we live in a digital world, with hundreds of apps that make up our lives. From meditating in the morning with Calm, to grabbing an Uber to work, to booking our vacations through Airbnb!
Since then, the definition of “design” has massively evolved and now includes whole new fields that are the crossover between how things look and how things work.
As we break down UX you’ll quickly learn how it’s all about understanding people! As psychologists already focus on people’s needs, you’ll be able to see how this applies to UX design and how it gives many in the field of psychology a head start in the game.
We invite all psychologists (and anyone else who is curious) who want to learn the basics of UX design!
In this workshop, we’ll dive into the basics of UX and how those principles inform the more visual side of design (AKA “UI”)
You’ll leave knowing:
The difference between UX design and UI design
Why companies think UX is so important
How to apply UX principles and strategies to your current role as a psychologist
