Off The Garden Path—Confirming What Matters Most

A session at Front Salt Lake City 2015

  • Clayton Farr

Thursday 18th June, 2015

3:50pm to 4:40pm (MST)

When we pretend to use a pretend thing, we think we know what we like, and what we would do, but we’re very often wrong. It’s our actions in real situations that reveal what we truly value. To base our design decisions on what people actually need and want we have to make prototypes that can be used off the garden path – that behave like fully working applications. And we need to make them as readily as we create our current high-fidelity versions. Thankfully, now we can. In this talk, Clayton will introduce tools, example projects, and an approach that places the confirmation of value at the front, and center, of your design process.
