Mission-Driven Interaction Design

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

A mission is that which gives us purpose. In movies and books, the entire
plot generally centers around the protagonist's mission. In real life,
however, we often limit our understanding of Œmission-driven¹ work to
charities and non-profits. In reality, every designer can seize the
opportunity to do work with greater meaning.

This talk is a practical guide to defining and understanding the mission
that your work serves, whether you design for a tiny non-profit or the
largest technology company. We¹ll look at successful examples of
mission-driven design from both the non-profit and commercial sectors, and
discuss methods for infusing this perspective into your own work.
Ultimately, this session will give you the tools to become more purposeful
in everything that you design.
