Intuitive Company will be representing in San Diego next week at the User Experience Professionals Association conference.

On Tuesday, June 23, we’ll be speaking on two topics, each with its own clever title:

Get the Tech Out of the Way: Shallow Interaction Design for Enhanced Social Play


Koshland Science Museum’s “Extreme Event” game, designed by Intuitive Company

At 11 a.m. Jes Koepfler and Kieran Evans will talk about a game they helped a museum research, design and develop to engage people in the complex topic of disaster resilience. Session attendees will have an opportunity to experience a portion of the game firsthand and then participate in a lively presentation and discussion about the user-centered design techniques we used, drawing on theories from instructional design and serious games.

  • How to understand user interface utility and design patents
