OOUX is a thoughtful, robust methodology for reducing complexity and creating intuitive user experiences, but the skills and insights gained through this course go beyond stickies and maps.

This event is for you if:

  • You are a designer or product professional considering OOUX but you aren't sure how the holistic nature of this philosophy fits in with a more agile environment or within the constraints of legacy systems.
  • You are well-versed in OOUX but you're struggling to implement OOUX principles when tasked with UI and feature-level work.
  • You're curious about how you can start with a current-state audit of broken, isolated, shapeshifting, and masked objects and "work backwards" to create a more intuitive and connected system.

Sophia Prater often says, "A little OOUX is better than no OOUX!" This practical talk will show you how to jumpstart OOUX: even within deep technical constraints and a feature-by-feature project cadence.

Lauren Stone is a Certified OOUX Strategist and works as a Senior Product Designer for Florence Healthcare in Atlanta, GA. She takes a hands-on approach to design and enjoys learning through experimentation and execution. With every new lesson and experience, Lauren has continuously refined her knowledge and skills.
