World Usability Day 2016 - Sustainable [Green] UX
World Usability Day -- a celebration around one common objective: ensuring the products and services important to our lives are easy to access and simple to use. This year’s theme, sustainability, is closely related to the UX design practice. Whether it’s policy, technology or even physical products, we can all strive to be more effective, efficient and responsible with the experiences that we create.
Join us on Thursday, November 10th, to learn how we could help individuals and organizations to make better choices to be environmentally friendly all the while achieving the best possible user experience.
Meet our Speakers
Andrea Saloio & Antayra Mares
SourceSeed Project: Nurturing the next generation material supply through human centered research
It all started with a question…. "How might we help designers make better choices on the materials they use?" From there Andrea and Antayra identified solutions that could be successfully transferred from one application to another. While considering every aspectof the product development process – design, material and manufacturing, business - to make sure they brought forward solutions that truly matter to the consumer and the brand. From this humble question, SourceSeed was born.
SourceSeed gives designers access to an online platform that partners with global textile manufacturers and suppliers to provide curated sustainable and innovative materials. SourceSeed also provides offline consultations and email updates on new materials.
