Designers, as makers of products and services, are key stewards of our world because the products and services we design influence the ways in which we live. Therefore, as the field of sustainability evolves into a practice, we need to take a deeper look through the lens of our own world and anchor ourselves solidly on this large and amorphous field.
Join us with Kem-Laurin Kramer, User Experience & Usability Strategist undefined and now author undefined for a special example-based talk on how to design products that create a more sustainable user experiences. Her book, User Experience in the Age of Sustainability, focuses on the economic, sociological and environmental movement in business to make all products including digital ones more sustainable. Not only are businesses finding a significant ROI from these choices, customers are demanding this responsible behaviour. And as new regulations, alongside consumer demands drive more sustainable design practices, this talk will provide the basics on how User Experience practitioners of all functional shades can become engaged in designing with conscience.
