Doors open at 6:00 for drinks, food and conversation.
Movie time starts at 6:45 sharp.

A huge thank you to Ziba, WebVisions, Vitamin T, and Georgetown Brewing. Without them, we'd all be going home after the event hungry and thirsty.

Digital Dialogues: Owen Jones Urban Airship Rebrand-For tech people too!
ISITE Design

This is a combo technology and design event!!

Relaunching the Urban Airship brand was a task that took as much skill as sending off an actual zeppelin into the skies. Introduced with just as great fanfare, the Urban Airship experience reached impressive heights.

It fell to Portland's own Owen Jones and Partners to re-launch both the brand and the website. They developed a new logo, extensive illustrations, a robust icon system, and other secondary brand assets. At the same time, they re-architected their product platform and rewrote almost all of the site content. They then melded the creative with a responsive front-end and an Expression Engine back-end to bring the brand to life.

How did they do it? Come find out as the Owen team discusses the challenges of simultaneously handling a company rebrand and website launch.

Roles: Lucas Swick - Technical Director Josh Balleza - Art Director

Digital Dialogues is an event series developed by AIGA Portland in partnership with IxDA and sponsored by FILTER and ISITE Design. Each event provides a sneak peek into a different collaborative case study. Relaunching the Urban Airship brand was a task that took as much skill as sending off an actual zeppelin into the skies. Introduced with just as great fanfare, the Urban Airship experience reached impressive heights.

CHIFOO (Computer Human Interaction Forum of Oregon) - CHIFOO Event: Researching Smart + Spatial Computing
Connective DX

CHIFOO presents: Researching Smart + Spatial Computing with Hannah Scurfield!

Understanding how humans will react and engage with new and emerging platforms can be challenging, particularly with smart and spatial computing. These types of experiences often depart from existing mental models of human-machine interaction and are often tricky to prototype. Traditional behavioral research methods often become less effective, meaning researchers need to experiment with new ways to gather learning.

Using examples from research into mixed and augmented reality experiences, we will explore these hurdles and discuss techniques for gathering insights when existing research methods prove inadequate.

Join this session to hear about experimenting with user experience design research techniques and how people interact with augmented and mixed reality experiences.

About the Speaker

Hannah drives technology innovation by researching people, behaviors and culture. She works with design, development, product and business teams to help build products and experiences that people love. She has nearly 18 years’ experience in both research and design roles in the technology industry and an exciting 14 years spent working in the innovation labs of global technology leaders.

Her career has been focused on emerging platforms, from early mobile computing and the Internet of things to augmented and virtual reality experiences. A background in film, human-computer interaction and ergonomics prepared Hannah for experimenting with smart and spatial computing and her current passion: reimagining the traditional screen-based design research studio.

Hannah likes blank sheets of paper and big questions with no answers.

Defense Against Dark Patterns: Ethics & Interaction Design
Remote.ly

Dark Patterns are tricks used in websites and apps that make you buy or sign up for things that you didn't mean to. Designers and developers often abdicate our responsibility to remove deceptive patterns from design. In this talk, we'll explore some dark patterns, talk about how it parallels with older industry practices, and what we should do about before it's too late to fix.

We'll also use this as an opportunity to meet others working across interaction design disciplines.

If you're a long-time member of the interaction design community in Portland, find yourself new without a network, or simply want to talk about what's going on, here's your chance to get connected!
