DESIGN SALON DESCRIPTION
Seattle VR and PlutoVR are hosting the Design Salon monthly meeting to provide a forum for ux professionals, designers, researchers, students and VR/AR/XR/MR enthusiasts to deeply discuss current literature, practices, research and tech from a design perspective.
We’ll focus on a number of design issues which are unique to immersive environments, but look at each one in depth and leave time for discussion. Concepts central to UX design, user research, storytelling, collaboration, cognition and related disciplines will be applied to both the hottest and the most overlooked areas vital to designing usable immersive realities. Bring your curiosity!
Salon Goal: To examine how design choices affect the user experience in VR/AR/MR/XR.
“What are the boundaries of Design?”
“What are the boundaries of problems?” - Charles Eames
Light refreshments will be available.
