We call ourselves UX professionals, but don't show our work in public. It's time to nut up or shut up. This highly energetic session will provide an in-depth behind the scenes look at the process behind the design, including: research, IA/interaction design, wireframing/prototyping and visual design. The presentations will end with a time-lapse video of the entire process from start to finish. Read more.
