UX Camp Fall 2019

The Map Is Not the Territory: Against UX Portfolios, & for Rational Hiring

Mired in deliverable purgatory, and possessed of strategic skills that are continually undervalued, UX professionals are further humiliated by hiring requirements that include portfolios. I will explain why portfolios are entirely wrong for evaluating the worth of a UX professional, why hiring managers can’t seem to stop demanding them, and propose a path out of this quagmire.

UX Camp 2013: Prototype Camp

Co-Designing with the Client: Using Axure to Bring Requirements to Life

Axure is a great tool to use to help move from a high-level list of requirements into functional concepting. Gabby will present an actual case study of how she used Axure to winnow down a 5-page list of requirements into a working prototype by co-designing with her client. Moving from whiteboard and pencil sketches into Axure, and refining on the go, we were able to get to a pretty decent prototype that gave visual designers the room to be creative, while adhering to the functional goals of the site.
