We are really amazed at the interactions you folks are having in the chat/polls and of course on social media.

We have so many cool things planned today 😎 Stay tuned and don’t forget to attend, we promise to wrap up the program almost an hours early so that you can continue to have your family/fun time over the weekend!

Recap of Day 5 #UXI20

Recordings are being sent to your registered email ID a few hours after the conference is getting over!

If you are not able to spare time to watch the whole thing. I’ve got you covered — Here is my brief recap of DAY5 at UXI20!

Day 5 was kicked off with Chris, who is a massive adventure enthusiast, he spoke about harnessing emotion in a design project. He was followed by Rozina, who spoke about the impactful work she did, how she was inspired to create impact through design. Then came Stefan who spoke about design systems on steroids with his cool transitions in his presentation!

After a quick break came Arko, who spoke about starting with an existing Design System as a skeleton, he had a cool set up a rockstar’s hair do! He was followed by Ana who spoke about culture, ally-ship and growth mindset, I found her journey very inspiring!

Again after a quick break was Siddharth, who spoke about designing for XR and how it made him re-learn everything about Design. Next was Lawanya, who spoke about Behavioural design and how design can shape or influence human behaviour and bring sustainable impact.

Next was Moving Stories where Kerith took stage with Nisha and took things to the next level with her informative and fun conversation on Story telling and her award winning work on films, direction and producing. Finally we had Mohit to close, he spoke about importance of adapting with evolving definitions over time and using design thinking in retelling your own normal life stories.

Thats it folks, see you today, the last day in the chats!

A Special appearance by Stefan Ivanov ✌️

He says watching himself online is so strange!

So we floated a poll which asked if you would be interested to take a Masterclass masterminded by Stefan, you guys said yes! We are here to give you what you ask for. So we’ve already begun the process of working with Stefan. No time to waste, courses start from Jan 2021.

We hosted Kerith, Stefan and Ana for Q&A!

Nisha stepped in to host Moving stories, I’m sure you must be relived by the change in host! She sure had fun having a chat with Kerith. But I was back to host Stefan and Ana for a quick Q&A session.

Stefan was so excited to be here as you can see in the above section! Huge thanks to Ana for being, her commitment is truly commendable, it was too early in the morning for her, she made it and killed it. Amazing Ana! 💯

🪜 UX Ladder on Day 6 at #UXI20

UX Ladder by Design Leaders! Click to view their profiles.

UX Ladder is one of the most enjoyed sessions at UX India. We’ve been conducting UX Ladder sessions since the past few years and the audience have always loved to ask questions to the panel on design and more.

UX Ladder is nothing but a moderated Q&A session which will be built based on the questions you ask and responses the panel gives you. It will be very candid and highly impromptu. So keep shooting questions as quickly as you can while Ranz and I will be moderating the session.

Alright, we have an amazing set of people joining us live. The panellists today are design leaders and we’ve been having conversations with them about the design scene in India for the past few weeks. The outcomes of the discussion have always been very insightful. We will have sets of design leaders up on the stage for you to ask questions. Every 15 for an hour a set of panelists will take stage and continue to keep the momentum going and bring in their own perspectives into the discussions.

We also have Ranz who is the Director of UX, Informatica from our team making a come back after he showcased his lit hosting skills for the Design X Awards last year.

Stay tuned, keep asking us your questions for the panel!
