World Usability Day 2018 – UX for Good or Evil


18:30 - 20:30

System Concepts, 72 Acton St, Kings Cross, WC1X 9NB

Join UXPA-UK and colleagues all over the world as we celebrate World Usability Day 2018.

*** Please note: Everyone who attends will receive a refund of the £10 ticket price. We ask for a deposit so we know how much food and drink to order ***

This year we have decided to bring in panel speakers from varied ends of the UX spectrum to peruse this year’s theme of “UX for Good or Evil” in an open setting to stimulate debate and discussion.

We will explore ideas that ”good UX causes delight and bad UX causes problems”, as well as how design can influence people’s behavior. Are our designs helping, or limiting? How can we alter our “design mindset” in a way that allows us to take a closer look in order to improve the world by better usability? And most importantly, how can we make sure that as UX designers and researchers we are setting the most inclusive design standards?

This event has been put together by the UXPA UK Events Team, Caroline and Lina.

Date: Thursday, 8th November 2018.
Venue: System Concepts, 72 Acton St, Kings Cross, London WC1X 8DP
