  1. Co-Design, Not Redesign, by Kevin M. Hoffman – An Event Apart Video

    Organizations continue to pile features and fixes onto the redesign process. Companies that overlooked mobile are making big changes in a panic, while those with designs suitable for any device aren’t sure what to do next. One thing that won’t change is that people crave easier, faster, and more widespread access to their information and tools. In this 60-minute video captured live at An Event Apart Orlando: Special Edition, Kevin M. Hoffman explains how service design thinking, lean approaches to user experience, and co-design processes offer an alternative to the money pit, and deliver experiences that delight your users. Kevin M. Hoffman has been making great web design happen for 15 years, as a strategist, educator, and information designer. Beginning as a “webmaster” in public libraries and universities, he went on to lead web communications strategy at the University of Baltimore and MICA. He also taught a younger generation of web designers in both BFA and MFA design programs, introducing them to web standards before browsers introduced those same standards into their codebase. As the director of user experience at Happy Cog, he oversaw all aspects of project definition, information design, and content strategy for clients like Harvard University, Nintendo, MTV, and the United States Holocaust Memorial …

  4. Content/Communication by Kristina Halvorson – An Event Apart video

    As web professionals, our jobs require more cross-team collaboration than ever, and that means it’s getting tougher to delineate our disciplines.

  6. The Curious Properties of Intuitive Web Pages by Jared M. Spool - An Event Apart Boston

    In this 60-minute video caught live at An Event Apart Boston 2012, Jared M. Spool discusses the surprisingly unintuitive logic behind the creation of "intuitive" websites. When a web page works, your users know exactly what to do. Everything makes sense, and they accomplish their goal, pleased with your site. Yet, often pages don’t work, and users get flustered and confused. It turns out that intuitive web pages abide by a set of curiously unintuitive properties. Watch Jared explain how to merge interaction design, visual design, information architecture, and other skills together to assemble web experiences that delight your users. Jared M. Spool is the founder of User Interface Engineering, a leading research, training, and consulting firm specializing in website and product usability. One of the most effective, knowledgeable communicators on the subject of usability today, Jared has been working in the field of usability and design since 1978, before the term “usability” was ever associated with computers. At User Interface Engineering, he has guided the research agenda and built UIE into the largest research organization of its kind in the world.

  9. Top Task Management: Making it Easier to Prioritize by Gerry McGovern—An Event Apart video

    Top Tasks Management is a method, developed over ten years of research, that helps you focus on what really matters in your projects, giving you the evidence to remove that which doesn’t. It’s been used to great effect by organizations such as Cisco, Microsoft, Lenovo, Google, IBM, VMWare, and the European Commission. In this 60-minute video, recorded live at An Event Apart Orlando: Special Edition 2016, UX consultant and creator of the Top Tasks method Gerry McGovern teaches you how to identify the top and tiny tasks in your projects. Learn what really matters, and (just as importantly) how to identify the inessential, low-level tasks that flood your designs and content pages, smothering simplicity, and confusing your users with an ocean of features and content. At the end of the hour, you’ll walk away with a strategy, giving you the ability to defend your decisions to your team and to management. Gerry McGovern is the founder and CEO of Customer Carewords, a company that has developed a set of tools and methods to help large organizations identify and optimize their customers’ top online tasks.
