Mathieu Turpault, partner and director of design at Bresslergroup, describes the integrated UI/ID process at an April 3 event.
About 50 user experience designers and product developers gathered at Bresslergroup's office for a PDMA Philadelphia event on April 3. Mathieu Turpault, IDSA, director of design and Rob Tannen, Ph.D., IDSA, director of research and interface design, presented the latest thinking on the blended process of product design.
Spot is a fast portable easy-to-use vision-screening system designed to detect several ophthalmological issues in children from near-sightedness to eye misalignment. The typical user is a volunteer vision screener who is part of a school or community vision-screening event. The Wi-Fi-enabled handheld device makes vision screening as easy as using a camera; the touch-screen interface clearly displays results accurately and instantly.
Rob Tannen, IDSA, director of research and user interface design for Bresslergroup, discussed the convergence of industrial design and user interface skills at the Product Design + Innovation Conference in London. He said, "People formally trained in industrial design can make excellent UI designers, but it doesn’t work the other way round."
The first of a four-part effort—built around a study of how lessons from CONNECTING’07 could be used to improve designed conference experiences—this webinar charts how industrial design is evolving to support designed services. (72 minutes)
Rob Tannen, Director of Human Factors at Electronic Ink in Philadelphia, has created a podcast in collaboration with IDSA that discusses current and future trends in the tools for conducting research and usability testing.
Join us for an opening reception and presentation showcasing products and their designers, brought to you by Design Within Reach and the Philadelphia Chapter of the Industrial Designers Society of America.
Our special guest speaker will be Rob Tannen, PhD, IDSA, Director of Human Factors for Electronic Ink, a 17 year old user-centered research and design firm located in Center City Philadelphia.
Rob Tannen, PhD, IDSA, will present on emerging technologies and tools that have the potential to change how user research will be performed in the near future:
Usability practitioners are in the enviable position of researching and evaluating new technologies - but are often limited by the tools available for conducting this research. A number of solutions have recently become available to support the process of user research. There are also several emerging technologies that have the potential to change what/how research will be performed in the near future.
