With the theme of "Sustainability in Design" at UX Sofia's 2022 conference, Sophia answers the question: "How can OOUX contribute to solving the climate crisis…or saving endangered species…or cleaning our oceans and air? Or…all of the above?" It all comes down to exposing the truth about the inner workings of the world by mapping connections and relationships.
During this Happy Hour, we will learn about applying the ORCA process in sprints to gather domain knowledge and start scoping a project from the ground up. Allie will share tips for preparing one yourself — including what went well, what mistakes she made and wants you to avoid, and resources from Notion and Miro to help you conduct your own.
In this happy hour, Certified OOUX Strategist, Maria Garcia, will discuss how she has approached object mapping a system that has tens if not hundreds of legitimately important objects that have complex relationships with one another.
OOUX isn't just a process; it teaches you a new, more practical, comprehensive approach to product, design, and development work and improves your overall skills. Let's talk about integrating OOUX into your UI and feature work. In this happy hour, we will go beyond the object map and explore some practical tips and tricks by reviewing some real-world examples.
Keith Rich and Anthony Gallo — a dynamic design/dev duo from Think Company who leverage OOUX in their work — recently started used Airtable as a content and data management solution. After a bit of experimenting, they quickly realized the benefits. Content consolidation, a well-documented API, and accessible project management round out the benefits.
In this month’s Happy Hour Sophia Prater (your host and chief evangelist for OOUX) will be introducing what noun foraging is, where it fits into the ORCA process, and some of the best places to go foraging. Next, Rik Williams, UX Architect and Certified OOUX Strategist, will introduce a software-based method to mine diverse content sources. Plus a fun design challenge!
During this happy hour (12pm EST!) we will learn about applying content ecosystem mapping, a specialized form of concept modeling, to drive clarity and alignment on large, complex digital strategy projects. We'll have a live, interactive demonstration of the technique based on some concepts in the OOUX universe, just for fun.
Marsha and her team work to help designers focus on their creation process, instead of spending time managing files and versions of files — and files within files. And files that don't play nice with other files. They are wrangling constantly increasing complexity — and they are leveraging Object-Oriented UX to do it. In this talk, Marsha will show us OOUX through her expert eyes.
In this talk given at the 2021 No Code Conference, produced by Webflow, you’ll learn the basics of OOUX and how it can help teams achieve a shared understanding of scope, strategically structure content, and shine light on hidden complexity — reducing rework in the process.
This talk will arm you with practical advice on how to take your OOUX knowledge to the next level: bringing your teammates’ perspectives and brainpower into the process.
In this talk, Havana will walk us through why tapping the knowledge of your Customer Service team is so important and how to do it properly. You'll learn how to foster relationships with the folks who have more direct contact with the user than anyone — and get a heads-up to avoid some common pitfalls.
Understanding APIs is becoming more and more important for UX designers. Fortunately, OOUX can help with that. Join us and our guest of honor, Caroline Sober-James to learn how you can tap into the business complexity-wrangling power of object-oriented user experience (OOUX) to plan, design, build, and deliver better APIs.
In this new book, Cornel writes about how an object-oriented approach to XR can help designers create more intuitive virtual experiences. During this Happy Hour, Cornel will take us through some UX for XR best practices. He'll also walk us through a case study that showcases how OOUX was leveraged to design a crypto art/NFT VR gallery.
If you are interested in Object-Oriented UX and are looking for ways to apply the methodologies, you're in luck! OOUX and Notion go hand-in-hand; exploring one will help you build mastery of the other. Diving into Notion is a way to apply OOUX in the wild and practice creating and manipulating systems.
Imogen Levy is head of Digital at Moorfield's Eye Hospital. When she started at this large NHS network of hospitals the digital "strategy" was basically to move all print material to PDFs. So, Imogen had significant educating and evangelizing to do. In this case study (and success-story-in-progress), imogen candidly shares how she is transforming content, structure, and minds with OOUX.
If you want to take a deep dive into the OOUX process, Amy White will show us how to use the ORCA method to think through privacy and permissions across an entire application - before designing any screens.
Is your portfolio the Boogeyman under your bed? Banish the Boogeyman with Amanda. She’ll walk us through some common portfolio pitfalls and show us how to combine self-discovery, Object-Oriented UX, and Webflow to take your portfolio from incomplete, hot mess, or cookie cutter to confident, clear, and uniquely you!
In this presentation, you will: Learn the three basic needs that humans have in any place: orientation, consistency, and organization. See a lot of examples that illustrate these needs in various places. Learn about content superposition.
In Dan's Lecture, he will give us a tour of his UX Magic framework, focusing on the foundation: UX Grammar. You'll learn how to create an Action-Object Matrix that illustrates the "conceptual grammar" of your system. Then, to reduce cognitive load (and screens!) you'll learn to compress that matrix, making it as dense as possible.
This rigorous course is for UX designers, developers, and digital product people who are tackling complexity, wrangling stakeholders, and trying to make systems-level change.
A dive into the weeds on UX systems, information architecture, human psychology, data wrangling, structured content, UX process, and above all simplifying the complex.
