Event description

Description

Are you currently working in UX?

Cool. A lot of people in Hong Kong would love to meet you and see what you’re up to!

Do you want to get into UX?

Maybe you're a graphic designer or a complete beginner. Doesn’t matter: Make joining this your first step.


Whether you are a UX professional and want to catch up with your peers or an aspiring newbie, join the UXD Meetup and Xccelerate at Garage Academy for this evening of sharing and networking.

We’ll have some brief discussions from pros who will showcase some of their finer work of late and then open the floor for casual networking, shaking hands and kissing babies (if you have one feel free to bring it for this purpose).



Talk 1: Object-oriented User Experience: Bridging the real world with the digital world
Speaker: Eugene Chan

Eugene is an user experience designer who worked in 4 cities and across a range of industries, from technology to non-profits. He is passionate in educating designer mindsets and leveraging design principles and methodologies in organizations and industries that are not aware of the power of design.


Talk 2: UX for the automotive industry: A look into the car purchasing experience
Speaker: Fred Aragao

Fred is a seasoned Experience Designer with 10+ years' experience across a range of different design fields, such as branding, packaging and experience design. He's been fortunate enough to work with leading brands across a range of market sectors, helping shape their digital experience. Previous clients include Volvo Cars, Vodafone and Manulife.


Talk 3: Why? How? What? And overuse of simple questions

Speaker: Ilya Belikin

Ilya is Designer and Product Manager. He believe that technology is shaping who we are. It is the medium through which we work, learn, share. It has the capacity to augment the best in us or diminish instead. The good design improves the quality of life — Ilya strives to achieve this with his work.

About UXD Meetup

Once every six weeks UXD Meetup gathers to chat about Design, Tech, and Humanities. UXD Meetup is an intersection, community, way to share what you care about and what matters in User Experience.

We invite speakers to give lighting-talks: share about your recent project, inspiration, something you just learned. Do not pitch your business. 10-15 minutes, few slides.

Share the raw ideas, be open, relax, and enjoy the evening.
