Junior UX Crunch: Prototyping

A junior UX meetup. Same top quality content but focused on growing young designers or those transitioning to UX.
Wednesday, 23rd October, 2019. 18:00 – 21:00. WeWork, Aldgate Tower, 2 Leman Street, E1 8FA.

A prototype is a draft version of a product that allows you to explore your ideas and show the intention behind a feature or the overall design concept to users before investing time and money into development.

The ultimate intent of creating a prototype is user testing which tells you how usable and valuable your product is to the end user. You can gain inputs and insights about how real users would actually use the product and what you can improve to address their pain points.

Join us as we sit down for another fantastic evening of theoretical insight, case studies, networking and more!

These events will offer a large variety of topics, all geared toward building confidence in the soft and technical areas which comprise the UX Design skillset; planning ahead to your first role in the industry. We will be joined by design leaders to understand how they hire & develop their design teams, as well as discussing how to add value to the design process and document your experiences.

    Hi There!

    Gustavo Teixeira here, can’t seem to find the order button. So unable to buy the ticket, how can I solve this problem?

    One more thing, I’m new to the world of Ux and Ui, so was wondering if it will help me as a motion designer, get a clear idea on how to transit from one profession to the other.

    Thanks and hope to hear from you soon

      Hi Gustavo,

      Thanks for messaging in!

      Would you be able to send me a screenshot (mike@techcircus.co.uk) of the ticket tailor widget as you see it? We can generate a ticket for you but it would be good to identify what the error is so that I can contact Ticket tailor support!

      And yes, the Junior UX Crunch is a great place to get an introduction to the world of UX/UI. A lot of our attendees are just starting out in the field or looking to transition from another. This event in particular (Junior UX Crunch: UX Fundamentals) will be teaching some of the basics of working in UX/UI.

      The atmosphere is also very relaxed and social so you can probably find out from the other attendees how it would be possible for you to transit across.
