Lily Kollé – How Minimalism Will Improve Your Design Process
As the designers of digital products and services, how can we ensure we are contributing great design to the world rather than clutter? We follow a “design process” to guide us yet there are inevitably unforeseen challenges from clients, employers, and technology which distract us from the user. Including a minimalist design approach in your process clarifies thinking about the user’s core objectives, which interactions are essential, and experience above features.
Lily Kollé shares the philosophies of designers who embrace a minimalist approach and shows how they have guided her own process when designing for user experiences. This talk will explore methods of great design from the past and how it can inform our practice as designers today.

Ame Elliott – No, Thank You: User Experience Design for Privacy
New technologies, such as Internet of Things and Artificial Intelligence applications, are collecting and using our personal data in unclear ways with unknown consequences. The traditional approach of treating information security as purely an engineering issue is an inadequate response to the challenges of protecting our personal lives and civil society. User experience design – including interaction design, brand strategy, copywriting, and user research – has an essential part to play in building systems people trust. This presentation highlights emerging challenges and gives practical examples of how user experience design contributes to a more private, secure, transparent, and ethical future.

Followed by a fireside chat together with Monique van Dusseldorp, Lily Kollé und Ame Elliott.
