Create Leicester - Next Event 18th April


Create Leicester - April 2019

The April instalment of Create Leicester for 2019 is coming up fast and will take place on the 18th of April. As usual, the event will be at the LCB Depot, starting at 6.30pm.

The January event was another fantastic, and packed evening. The speakers on the night were Jessica Lovegood (AVP UX Designer) at Barclays and Mansha Manohar (Senior UX Design Researcher) from the BBC. The topics covered were really insightful and engaging. A big thank you to both speakers.

The bar has been set high, and our speakers for the April event have been confirmed The lineup and topics covered are as follows:

Alison Coward - Founder of BracketGreat Workshops, Great Teams

Alison Coward, Founder of Bracket, will discuss how workshops are an essential part of projects for gathering information and generating ideas. But sometimes the energy and motivation are lost soon after they finish. Alison will discuss how you can make sure your workshops have a longer-term impact, which can influence the way your team works together?

In this talk, Alison will share her practical tips for designing and facilitating effective workshops that generate high-quality outcomes, and how to keep the momentum going that contributes to a collaborative team culture.

 Ruby Steel (Snr. Design Strategist) and Will Merrill (Snr. Industrial Designer) from Smart Design

"Sorry, I didn't get that" - Designing for Voice

This topic will be a collaboration between Ruby Steel (Snr. Design Strategist) and Will Merrill (Snr. Industrial Designer) from Smart Design

Together, Ruby & Will will share their experiences of designing for BBC Two’s Big Life Fix, when they built a custom Voice User Interface (VUI) for a woman living with multiple sclerosis. Today’s Home Hubs might seem like the obvious answer for people whom dexterity and mobility is a major issue but VUI’s are still in their infancy and not accessible by any means.

As always, there is a free alcoholic beverage (or soft drink) for everyone that attends.

If you are interested in attending, please register your attendance at eventbrite.
