“Unfold your brain – Skyrocket your creative ability” was the title of Denise’s workshop. We looked at how to banish our inner critic and the mental blocks that get in the way of creative thinking. We also looked at how you can improve focus and get your brain into a state where you access creative ideas best.
Val Head held the workshop “Animating the user experience”. We looked at why motion is so useful in our designs and took some time to go through Disney’s 12 principles of animation and how they are applied to our design processes.
Long term friend and serial guest on UX Podcast Craig Sullivan joined us after his talk “scaling stupidity”. We talked about bullshit, broken data, and how we really have to stop guessing, bury our egos and swallow our pride. We introduce you to “Little Craig”, the little nagging voice inside you telling you the truth you know is true.
Neurologist, cognitive neuroscientist and author Anjan Chatterjee joined us after his keynote presentation on day 2 of Interact london to talk about the neuroscience of aesthetics. Beauty matters.
