Blind men & an elephant: Uncovering the pieces of User Experience Puzzle
“The words ‘User Experience’ have come to encompass a vast vocabulary of skills, methods, thought process and philosophy. And it means different things to different people. The closest I can get to describing this is through the lore of the blind men and the elephant. Some see it as user research, some others as UI design and many more as usability testing. And this is especially true in a country like India where both the academic and professional fronts are barely just beginning to explore this vast space. As innovators forging breakthroughs in our respective fields, it is crucial that we understand, adopt and make second nature to us, what often seems like nothing more than an evasive, fuzzy (and if I may add, sometimes even just as fancy and glamorous) mantra,” says Ashwini Asokan, User Experience Strategist, Intel Corporation, San Francisco Bay Area.
Users expect nothing less than seamless UI/UX design and you need to be on top of it. Cross-platform mobile UI/UX design is a key to the success of your mobile venture. Join Ashwini as she peels open the different layers of User Experience which can create clear value for your business, as well as add a solid foundation for your innovation process in ways you’ve never imagined before.
Be a part of this cutting-edge UI/UX Workshop at MobileSparks on December 14th at Royal Hotel Orchid, Bangalore. Ashwini is one of the 17 splendid speakers at MobileSparks.
