Design Practice Session

Pulitzer-winning writer and journalist John Hersey once said, "To be a writer is to throw away a great deal, not to be satisfied, to type again, and then again and once more, and over and over."
Similarly, to be a designer is to prototype, throw out extraneous features, iterate, iterate, and reiterate again, over and over. The redesign work is never done. In that spirit, we're introducing Design Hack Night with Puget Sound SIGCHI. We'll take on an existing product or service that could use another round of iteration, identify where things don't work, and create a more pleasurable experience.
How it works
Collectively come up with a few broken experiences we've encountered. The common ones are banking and airline sites.
Form small groups of 2-3
A facilitator will guide you through a series of exercises to discover a more efficient and pleasant user journey
The teams will work together to create wireframes and prototypes of a new design
Teams present the problem they solved, their approach, and their proposal
Creative brains need fuels. We'll be providing food and beverages, as always.
