Talks

Energetic, applicable, and engaging lectures by Sophia

Sophia is well-known as an high-energy, passionate, and spontaneous and relatable speaker with a high track record of keeping people awake and out of their email. Talks can be scaled to fit 30 minute, 45 minute, one hour, or 90 minute time slots. (Yes, 90 minutes. This works great as an interactive "lunch and learn" mini-workshop.)

Current talks include:

  • Introduction to Object Oriented UX: Introduction to the concepts behind OOUX and a primer on Object Mapping.
  • Taming Complexity with Object Oriented UX: How to cheat on your IA, reduce components, and zero in on functionality.
  • UX for Lizard Brains: how the human brain perceives its environment and how to "play nice" with our evolved tools of understanding.

OOUX Fundamentals Workshop

A crash course on the principles and methodologies of object-oriented UX

Either a half day or a full day of object-oriented UX for your team.

  • We kick off with a 90-minute interactive lecture. Invite the whole company—CEOs, managers, account directors. Great for those that can't carve out a full day for the workshop but still want to get up to speed on the concepts of OOUX.
  • After the talk, we will break into teams and step through a guided object mapping exercise.
  • Next, teams will create a Call-to-Action Inventory—an amazingly organized audit of functionality.
  • With a solid object map on the wall, we will go heads down to practice some OOUX-style sketching.
  • We will wrap up the day with a quick prototyping demo (in Axure or Sketch, your choice).

The workshop will be customized for your team. Leading up to the workshop, we will collaborative plan the day, tweaking the schedule to meet your needs. Please keep in mind, we will use a simple design challenge for the Fundamentals Workshop. Simultaneously learning OOUX and applying OOUX to a project you are working is usually too overwhelming. If you want to take your design challenge through the OOUX ringer, let's hang out for two days. On the second day, we will run through OOUX Applied.

OOUX Advanced Concepts Workshop

A full day workshop into advanced territory of object-oriented UX

Go beyond OOUX Fundamentals for a dive into the deep end. Best for teams working on complex digital products (or a suite of products).

  • Create a high-fidelity call-to-action inventory to get your functionality organized by user-type and scenarios
  • Diagram object lifecycles, states, and various user permissions
  • Learn to adjust the complexity of system with object-metadata shifting and determining super- and sub- objects
  • Identify and handle master-instance objects
  • Learn to lead your own cross-functional OOUX workshops

Object-Oriented UX

October 20, 2015

We know big, monolithic webpages won’t meet the needs of responsive sites and endless screens. But we’re often still quilting together design patterns and content modules, rather than truly thinking in systems. This article will show you how defining the objects our users interact with, and the relationships between them, opens doors to more interconnected—and successful—user experiences.
