Beyond Handwaving: The Role of Performance in Interaction Design

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

What does it take to turn a great idea into action? 

An important part of being an interaction designer is telling stories in front of an audience. It's not just a part of presenting proposals -- dreaming up characters, acting out scenarios, and describing interaction mechanisms are part of everything from sketching to walkthroughs.

Using case studies from a two-year ethnographic observation of interaction design consultancies, this talk will shed new light on the performance skills that designers use everyday. We'll take a close look at how performances make a difference to projects, teams, design careers and, ultimately, to the field of interaction design itself.
