About this event

Having an intuitive user experience is a top goal for every design project, yet surprisingly few people have a strong understanding of what this important concept really means. In this talk, author Everett McKay will explain in objective terms what it means for a UI to be intuitive. You will learn a practical definition, the attributes required to be intuitive, the levels of intuitiveness, and when it makes sense for a UI to not be intuitive. Attendees will learn how to help their teams design user experiences that are more self-explanatory and require less training and documentation. These concepts will be applied to a variety of case studies.

Everett is author of "Intuitive Design: Eight Steps to an Intuitive UI" and "UI Is Communication: How to Design Intuitive, User Centered Interfaces by Focusing on Effective Communication.” While working at Microsoft, Everett wrote the Windows UX Guidelines for Windows 7 and Windows Vista. Everett holds a master's degree in computer science from MIT.

SWAG: All attendees will receive an Eight Steps to an Intuitive UI poster, plus UXPA members will have a chance to win a free copy of his newest book (http://intuitiveuibook.com).

All are invited to attend this free community event, and all are welcome to stay afterwards to meet the author and participate in a feedback session.

This lecture will benefit UX designers, researchers, front-end developers, project managers, product owners, students, and more!

UXPA (UX Professionals Association) Front Range Chapter is proud to sponsor this event, along with General Assembly and TEKsystems.
