UXCamp+ Vienna 2018

“UX, Design Thinking & Systematic Innovation”

Das heurige UXCamp findet am Freitag, den 27.4.2018, von 9:00 bis 17:00 im wko[forum]wien in der Operngasse 17-21, 1040 Wien statt und wird von UXpro Austria veranstaltet:

Rund um die Themenbereiche Usability und User Experience, Design Thinking und TRIZ (die Theorie erfinderischen Problemlösens) können sich die Teilnehmer einen ganzen Tag informieren, Erfahrungen austauschen und vernetzen. UX Designer, Usability Engineers, Interaction & User Interface Designer, Entwickler, Projektverantwortliche, CIOs, Manager und Berater erhalten die Möglichkeit einen Überblick über die unterschiedlichen Werkzeuge und Vorgehensmodelle moderner Projektarbeit. Dabei kommen anschauliche Praxisbeispiele und Erfahrungsberichte nicht zu kurz. Denn, das Besondere am Format der BarCamps ist, dass es ausdrücklich erwünscht ist, dass Teilnehmer auch eigene Sessions halten: Das kann eine Präsentation sein, ein Workshop oder eine Diskussion. Dabei ist es nicht unbedingt notwendig Folien vorbereiten, aber man kann. Beim Frühstück werden die Beiträge kurz vorgestellt, ein Sessionplan erstellt und schon geht’s los.

Circular Design

Seen as an extension of Design Thinking, Circular Design has been introduced by IDEO and the Ellen MacArthur Foundation in 2016.

“Moving from our traditional take-make-dispose economy, to one that has a closed loop, where materials, nutrients, and data are continuously repurposed.”

Normally we consider the production of something as a quite linear process. Picking an idea, digging things out, using it until we throw it away. Somewhere in the middle is the phase of usage, where we as designers do our job of researching, designing, prototyping & testing. The disadvantage is, that in the end we create garbage, that can be used as row material for new products.

The idea of circular design is, thinking about how a product can be …

  • Reused (goes directly back to your users)
  • Refurbished (comes back to you as the service provider)
  • Remanufactured (goes through the manufacturing process)
  • Recycled (goes back to the materials processor)

already during the phase of creation.

Examples are e.g.
