Changing our Relationship with Tech - Do we Have a Responsibility as Designers?

Tom is the Digital Planner at The Moment, having spent his career exploring the relationship between audiences, content and technology. In short, his experience has taught him that understanding the audience and being able to creatively inspire an emotional response through the right digital technology/channels ensures high engagement, and more importantly, dictates clear behaviour/actions. Tom has been responsible for a range of ‘digital’ projects, from major digital transformation for large corporations to activation projects for start-ups and new brands.

Every part of work and home lives is saturated with tech. But we’re no longer in control, our personal data has become currency and humans have become completely co-dependent on digital services. You could say that the inherent ‘design’ of social networks and online services is to encourage re-use, to reward addictive behaviour, to craft experiences that never end. In his talk, Tom will discuss if we have a responsibility as designers to change this and to help create a world where humans have a better, more positive relationship with tech.

Where to do with all the research

👉🏽 Repositories (aka repos). 👈🏽 As UX-ers we sometimes struggle to get enough research done in the first place so it's great when we finally get the research ball rolling and start accumulating eye-opening insight but... what do we do with it all? Survey results, usability test findings and discovery research interviews... where should it all go? How do we make sure knowledge keeps being seen and built upon rather than be put in a dusty report to never be surfaced again?

Jane Hostler (a well versed member of our group!) faced this problem in her work and will be sharing her experiences with us. 🌈

Here's a bit more:

Jane is a User Experience Designer who’s worked in the digital industry for the last 20 years. Primarily working as a UI designer on websites (plus some brief dabbling with front end development back when it was all tables), she landed a new job two years ago that brought the chance to gain product design and research experience and everything that comes with it. Like, what do you do with all that stuff!?

She’ll be giving a quick whistle stop tour of how Airtable has helped her to pull together the feedback and insights she uncovers in this role, and looking at the pros and the cons of Airtable as a research repository.

We're all invited to actively participate in what will definitely be a very interesting conversation and chip in with our own experiences of dealing with insight stacks.

Looking forward to seeing you there. Feel free to BYOB and food, light candles, anything goes! Details for how to join will be provided nearer the time. Please RSVP and feel free to share or invite others. We're @LadiesThatUXBRS on twitter.
