Tom Greever will be joining us to discuss his new book Articulating Design Decisions published by O'Reilly Media. (You do not need to have read the book to participate.) Every designer has had to justify designs to non-designers, yet most lack the ability to explain themselves in a way that is compelling and fosters agreement. The ability to effectively articulate design decisions is critical to the success of a project, because the most articulate person often wins. This practical talk will include principles, tactics, and actionable methods for talking about designs with executives, developers, or other stakeholders who have influence over the project with the goal of winning them over and creating the best user experience.
Tom helps companies and organizations design better websites and apps. He is the UX Director at Bitovi
, a front-end design and development consulting company, and has worked with both small startups and large corporations across many different industries.
