The Design of The Future – UXcamp Europe 2016 (+ “UX-The Musical Nr. 4”)

My talk at UXcamp Europe, June 25th 2016 in Berlin.

In this talk I want to look at The Design of The Future: Where our industry is going, how the role of designers is changing and how to predict all of this. I talk about revolutions in interfaces, intelligence, simplicity and our own work.

Plus, “UX-The Musical Nr. 4”. Big thanks to Aminata, Gunnar and Marvin! And thanks to Martin and Luzi for recording. :-)

The Future Part II: Now even more futurer! — UXcamp Europe 2015 (+ “UX-The Musical Nr. 3”)

My talk at UXcamp Europe, June 20th 2015 in Berlin.

In this talk I want to look into the crystal ball and see what the far future will bring for all of us UX designers. I talk about algorithms, exponential progress, artificial intelligence and procedural literary. At the end we all have a dose of future shock.

Also, once again, we are doing “UX-The Musical Nr. 3”. Big thanks to Tanja Cappell (@frauhoelle), to the Singing Hulks and to Marvin! :-)

The Future of User Experience — UXcamp Europe 2014 (+ “UX-The Musical part 2!”)

My talk at UXcamp Europe, June 7th 2014 in Berlin.

In this talk I want to look into the crystal ball and see what the future will bring for all of us UX designers. What is the future of technology? What are business models of the future? And what does that mean for User Experience Design?

Also, once again, we are doing “UX-The Musical!” part 2. Big thanks to The Northern Soul Machine and Marvin. And thanks to Katrin, Granaton and Markus for filming.

The UX Personality Test — a talk on different types of designers (+ “UX-The Musical!”)

My talk at UXcamp Europe, June 22nd 2013 in Berlin.

Over the years I figured there are many different kinds of designers I’ve worked with. So in this talk I thought it would be fun to discuss this, see which one you are and – of course – see which one is the best. Along the way we discuss rationalizing decisions, the movie trailer method and of course the very surprising whodunnit conclusion.

And as a bonus at the end we do “UX-The Musical!” This originated last year but see for yourself. Big thanks to Aminata, to The Northern Soul Machine and to Confetti-Markus! :-)
