Designing for Sh*t That Doesn't Exist Yet

Tuesday, March 15
9:30AM - 10:30AM

Courtyard Marriott
Rio Grande Ballroom
300 E 4th St

How do you design a user-centered experience for something no one's ever actually used? Emerging technology moves at the speed of innovation—and it's in acceleration mode. Now more than ever, design teams must adapt their skills and methodologies at the same breakneck pace to help this tech reach its potential in our lives.

So shut down Photoshop, close those mobile interface guidelines, and join us to ponder the possibilities for the future of user experience design. We'll discuss design pioneers from the past and present, evaluate the tools and methods we rely on now, and offer our ideas for moving forward into the nebulous world of future tech.
