Nirish Shakya is a UX Lead at NOW TV (Sky) and a UX coach/trainer. He has been designing products across multiple channels including web, mobile and in-store for big (and small) name brands in the UK, Australia, New Zealand and Singapore, including financial institutions, universities, telcos and not-for-profits. He has been in the digital industry for more than 10 years, starting off as a developer and UI designer and then diving head first into UX design in 2010. He regularly practices Vipassana meditation and Wing Chun Kung Fu which he believes have made him a better designer.
Nirish’s presentation will cover – beyond the buzzword, consistency is about one of the fundamental tenets of good UX – learnability. But with our user’s journeys spanning so many devices, platforms and touch points, it can seem like an unattainable aspiration for a lot of teams. On the other end of the spectrum, forcing consistency without flexibility is a trap that is easy to fall into. This talk will explore three things you can do to create more consistent experiences across touch points without losing contextual relevancy.
Jason Grant is a UX Strategist, design mentor and teacher, conference speaker and extremely experienced UX Designeracross many industries and will talk about Broken UX.
