PLEASE NOTE: You must purchase a ticket to attend this event. Tickets are available at: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/experience-crosslinked-the-ux-storytelling-game-tickets-45152103156. Thanks.
Come out and be one of the first to try Crosslinked: A UX Storytelling Game, designed and developed by Sophia Voychehovski Prater, a UX designer in Atlanta, GA. This game will challenge you and may even make you think about UX differently. After snacks and a crash course on Object-Oriented UX, we will sit down to learn the game, play the game, and then give feedback. Your ticket includes snacks, soft drinks, and one copy of the game deck for you to take home and play with your colleagues!
Why learn about Object-Oriented UX? OOUX helps business teams, designers, and developers create a shared language, smoothing out the product development process. With OOUX you will design elegant, modular systems that can travel across devices with consistency and efficiency. But best of all, OOUX helps us create better navigation for our users.
What is the very first thing that we hide when screen size gets tight? The persistent navigation. Even if it’s not hidden, users often ignore persistent navigation and go straight for the big shiny objects instead—the content on the page. And users want that content to link to other relevant content. They don’t want to hunt through your menus, however well-intentioned they may be.
In addition, users rarely enter an experience through a prescriptive homepage. They enter through back doors like search results and social media feeds. When a user lands on a content object such as an article, an event, an artist, a campaign, or a product, we need to ensure that they see other relevant content. That’s where crosslinking comes in.
This fun Saturday afternoon will take you through the basics of Object-Oriented UX and teach you the art of object mapping. You’ll learn the methodology, and then you’ll learn Sophia’s new card game that helps you practice (and teach!) Object-Oriented UX. We hope you will join us.
