DigitalBristol organises and facilitates free monthly networking events with stand-out speakers, attracting the best digital knowledge, expertise and businesses in the region.
This month's speaker is Alan Colville (@alancolville), a Product Experience Consultant, speaker, writer and co-founder of Analog Coop and Mapalong.
In his presentation, Alan will discuss how to move the conversation away from flat pictures of web pages to a much deeper understanding of why people will engage with the clients brand. During this talk, attendees will hear how both clients and designers are required to find and inhabit common ground. A place where we can use techniques, which we and the client can understand and input to. Case studies will show how this collaboration could work.
Alan will talk through a series of techniques to better engage clients in the process of design. Specific techniques may include:
Brand Archetypes - uncovering the essence of a brand and using it to improve the UX
A shared vision - the co-ordinating force behind great UX
Story telling - the narrative of the site
Empathy mapping / Personas - putting a face to users
Decision Architecture - the art of persuasion
Collaborative sketching - where the real value is
