User experience owes its status as a mainstream field to an explosion of digital technology. Many UX professionals spend their time exclusively on design for screens, become fluent in UI conventions, and think about their methods through that rectangular lens.
So what happens when you need to create a thing? Industrial design adds another literal dimension to being user-centered. How do you even start to translate user needs into a physical object? What does prototyping look like? What else does a designer have to think about?
In this online discussion, Matt Goulet and Mary Donnelly will discuss the partnership of industrial design and user experience in the creation of medical devices. They’ll talk about some common principles that drive what they do, the unique considerations for the research and design of physical products, and how the two roles can work together effectively.
P.S.: We’re aware of the irony of communicating through a digital interface in order to encourage the discussion of UX outside its confines, so don’t bother pointing it out.

We are so sorry to announce that we are cancelling our annual Summer Social at Tattersall Distillery in Minneapolis. We will be planning to have a different, online event in July and try for our Summer Social when our world allows for more dynamic, in-person social networking events.
We will miss celebrating the joys of summer with you in person, but we look forward to making the best of our situation with other compelling events!
Behavioral Economics is a subset of Behavioral Science that deals with how humans make choices when presented with options. This talk isn’t about how to do behavioral economics, it isn’t about math, or modeling or any tough to understand stuff.
It’s about cool research people have done. We’ve done the hard work for you, read the research, summarized it, and now give you 5 really cool takeaways about humans you can use in your everyday work.
Guthrie Weinschenk is a Behavioral Economist and the COO of The Team W, Inc. He has a degree in Economics, a law degree, and is a licensed attorney. He consults on Behavioral Science and Behavioral Economics, teaches workshops and gives keynote speeches at business and design conferences.

Join us for a full-day workshop on Behavioral Design!
Learn how to apply recent research in brain and behavioral science to engage, encourage, and persuade the people that use your products and services. In this fast-paced interactive workshop we share the latest research on how people see, pay attention, decide, and what motivates people to take action.
You will learn and practice how to apply this science to the design of your products, services, and spaces so that people will be engaged and persuaded to take specific action. Here are some of the things you will learn:
During the workshop you will practice applying what you are learning to practical product, interface, and interaction design. After the workshop you will take with you a summary of what you have learned and be ready to apply the ideas and techniques to your own projects.
