Why UX Matters: The Chips & Pickle Story
Even the smallest interface design decisions can have a seismic effect on business. Yet digital product teams continually miss the little things. Why? Join Dean on a tour of seemingly insignificant interface design quirks (and enabling processes) that have changed history, caused mass panic, otherwise upended society, and completely ruined his sandwich.
Because screen-based interfaces are central to modern life, our day-to-day work has monumental purpose and value. We banish interface rage, help businesses save and make serious money. We keep people safe from disaster and yes, pickles. You hardly need a better reason to get up in the morning.
You’ll come away from this talk with a stronger sense of purpose in the smallest details of your work, energized and ready to fight the good fight.
