    Session Description

    How do designers make usability decisions? What is the definition of Ease of Use? This session aims to demystify the mechanical and artistic aspects of design using metaphors from other creative forms to help identify the goals, variables and constraints in designing software interfaces. Chih will use real world examples to illustrate the key decision points and trade-offs in a project cycle and introduce design concepts and practices that challenge conventional approaches to user experience design.
