Tash - How to be more creative without turning into a wanker
In this talk, I'll cover how to get really good ideas, how to get started on them and what to do when you're stuck. Tash Keuneman is a UX designer at Tiny beans, an app for new families. She writes about creativity on her blog, used to take photos for a living and plays really sad songs on the ukulele, like Radiohead-level-of-sadness. Tash has just started combining photography and paint in a new project.
Kris - Punch the Monkey
Have you ever wondered how the banner ad came to be? Kris will give a potted history of online advertising and explain why the web, in all its wonder, still has the ugliest advertising of any medium. She'll also talk about some of the approaches people are using to (hopefully) change this for good.
Clara - Pixels with a certain colour value
What is the maths behind a computer ‘seeing’? How do we get a computer to identify trends that seem so obvious to the human eye? Clara takes us beyond the pixels on the screen to tell the secrets of some of the most infamous techniques of visual data analysis.
*Note: Please try to arrive on time as the lifts need swipe access to get to Level 6. There will be someone to swipe people up, but they can’t stay downstairs forever!
