Making the Case for UX Prototyping

Thursday, June 23, 2016


A great user experience is a labor of love. It requires solid Design Thinking and a commitment to testing and iteration. But our timelines are finite, and the speed at which we can deliver a product to market can make or break its success. With real constraints like these, how do you get early validation or truly helpful user feedback without investing undue time?

Join us and AIGA Minnesota’s UX Designers Committee as designers from Optum’s internal incubator, The Garage, make the case for UX prototyping and share what it’s like to leverage lean innovation for a top-20 Fortune 500 company.

Who Should Attend

Designers seeking to learn more about prototyping including tools and methods for creating prototypes, and how to decide what type of prototype best fits your unique situation.

Entrepreneurs seeking to validate business concepts before investing heavily in development.

Business owners or executives seeking to better advocate for UX and prototyping within their organizations.

What’s your next big thing?

Partnering with the Twin Cities Geekettes and Gr8Ladies on Hack the Gap was my last ‘big thing’ and now that that is mostly wrapped up, I’m off looking for my next big adventure.

What’s your why?

I’m working on building the life I want to live. I choose the clients and partners I want to work with. I decide how much sleep I need, and how to get it. I set up shop wherever it makes sense for me, and wherever I’ll be most productive. I decide when to turn off, and when to turn on. I don’t want a life of spending an arbitrary number of hours in an arbitrary 10×10’ space. I want a life that includes me having ample time to stay healthy and happy, to be with the people I love, and to work on things that matter to me personally.
