How do we know beforehand whether our efforts going into UX design will truly lead to an inspiring user experience? Well, buckle up, because we’re taking you for a ride! Hot off a series of presentations, including at Service Design Berlin
and IA Konferenz
, we’re excited to have our designers Isabell
swing by Munich for this month’s Pre-Work Talk
! They'll be sharing their experience in using virtual reality as a tool to understand user needs while developing a new subway line. And stick around for a discussion on the potential VR bears as a prototyping method in service design-related projects!
The complex becomes tangible, the needs understood. In using VR as a prototyping method, Isabell and Gregor were able to gather valuable insights into actual user behavior and interactions – rather than just work with abstract assumptions of how the user would maybe have behaved. We are excited to have them share what exactly that looks like, what benefits this can bear, as well as what they took away from it.
So swing by, grab a cup of joe, and let them take you on a journey into another world! We’re already on the edge of our seats! See you at 8:30 for coffee and networking; the talk kicks off at 9!
Let us know if you can make it by RSVPing on Facebook!
