We are in the extremely early stages of planning UX Week 2009, our flagship conference on all matters related to user experience design (in fact, we’re so early, we have almost nothing on that page).
A theme for UX Week 2009 is “Looking laterally”, and inviting speakers from fields outside of design who have influenced our work. Someone who has had a huge impact on how I think about design and the creative process is comics creator Scott McCloud, best known for his book Understanding Comics, and more recently for the comic explaining Google Chrome.
Scott will present at UX Week 2009, and he was kind enough to chat with me about comics, visual expression, Edward Tufte, and the importance of believing in the message. You can listen to our conversation on Adaptive Path’s podcast (iTunes, RSS), or download it directly.
Register for UX Week 2009, or any of our upcoming events, by December 31st, and use the promotion code RNSB and you’ll get 15% off the current (discounted) registration price.
