  3. Rahul Sen — Interaction Design Bauhaus

    My session focuses on what I call — ‘The Interaction Design Bauhaus’. It discusses this growing minimalist, ‘form follows data’ trend in UX and compares it to historical phenomenon that occurred in the early 1900’s in the form of the industrial design Bauhaus movement.

  5. Dan Hill — Closing keynote: 15 years in

    Web Directions South 2009, Sydney Convention Centre, October 9 4.05pm.

    It is time for the prac­tice of web devel­op­ment and design to broaden its hori­zons. How can the skills and expe­ri­ence we’ve acquired over the last 15 years of work­ing on the inter­net be applied more broadly to, say, the design of cities, build­ings, organ­i­sa­tions, gov­ern­ment and so on?

    In a slightly fool­hardy, ambi­tious talk, Dan will draw from his expe­ri­ence of lead­ing design across the BBC’s web­sites, co-​​founding the global media prod­uct Monocle, work­ing with projects like Lonely Planet, Channel 4, Urbis museum and the Spice Girls web­site, and now his cur­rent work with the mul­ti­dis­ci­pli­nary design con­sul­tancy Arup, where he helps design bet­ter cities, build­ings and streets.

    Dan will sug­gest that some of these core ideas — har­ness­ing user-​​centred think­ing with the sparks of indi­vid­ual insight, work­ing with real-​​time data, sep­a­rat­ing con­tent from pre­sen­ta­tion, mul­ti­dis­ci­pli­nary design-​​centred prac­tice, enabling adap­ta­tion and hack­a­bil­ity, bal­anc­ing top-​​down inter­ven­tion with bottom-​​up emer­gence, amongst oth­ers — might work effec­tively as core prin­ci­ples of ser­vice design, offer­ing new ways to build, design, inno­vate and oper­ate to ser­vices, prod­ucts and organ­i­sa­tions well out­side of the Australian web industry’s tra­di­tional focus.

  6. Relly Annett-​​Baker — All the small things

    Microcopy is the ninja of online con tent. Fast, furi ous and deadly, it has the power to make or break your online busi ness, to kill or stay your foes. It’s a sen tence, a con fir­ma tion, a few words. One word, even. It isn’t big or flashy. It doesn’t leave a call ing card. If it does its job your cus tomer may never notice it was there.
