Event Details

In collaboration with Direction conference 2016, IxDA Sydney are hosting one of the leading minds in Web and Interaction Design, 'Designing for Touch' author Josh Clark. This interactive Q&A session chaired by Katja Forbes, local leader for IxDA Sydney, will explore hot topics related to designing for mobile including: 

  • recent shifts and trends in mobile design

  • changes to user expectations since the introduction of touch interfaces and their impact to our work

  • opportunities and pitfalls when designing for mobile

  • design for the ergonomics of multitude of mobile interface sizes

  • mobile websites and the emerging internet of things

The Q&A session will be proceeded by drinks and canapes hosted by Sydney University's Faculty of Architecture, Design and Planning.

Mobile is taking the centre stage where smartphones have become the primary device for nearly all of us. A growing number of organisations now see most web visits come from mobile devices. How to make sure your mobile experience reflects that? What’s next for mobile interfaces? What does jogging and designing for mobile have in common? Find out all this and much more!

Josh Clark is an interaction designer specializing in connected devices, mobile experiences, and responsive design. He is founder of Big Medium, a design agency whose clients include TechCrunch, Time Inc, eBay, O’Reilly Media, and many others. Josh wrote Tapworthy: Designing Great iPhone Apps (O’Reilly, 2010) and Designing for Touch (A Book Apart, 2015). He speaks around the world about what’s next for digital interfaces. In a past life, he created the incredibly popular “Couch-to-5K” (C25K) running program, which has helped millions of skeptical would-be exercisers take up jogging. (His motto is the same for fitness as it is for software user experience: no pain, no pain.)
