Crosslinked UX Storytelling Game: Lunch-and-Learn

Learn object-oriented UX through play

Why it's awesome

Is your  team geeky about design and games? Then this long lunch will provide more team building than a ropes-course and more UX continued-ed than an evening meetup or a dry guest lecturer. We will learn about structuring our content with an object-first approach. We will hire information architects and content strategists, and poach talent from our opponents. We will draw happy hour cards, and of course, score points for strategic crosslinking!

The breakdown

While your team eats brown bag lunch (that's on you!), I will give a brief presentation on object-oriented UX and its basic-but-magical principles that lead to better design. As lunch is wrapping up, we will learn the rules of Crosslinked: A UX Storytelling Game, a game that was designed and developed by Rewired over the course of two years of play-testing and iterating.

Splitting into groups of 2-4, teams will play a few rounds of Crosslinked. At the end of the session, we'll learn a few ways we can use the cards for quick prototyping and exploring contextual navigation.

What you will learn
  • The basics of OOUX, by solving a puzzle instead of listening to a lecture
  • The importance of contextual navigation (crosslinking!)
  • How to get creative with content structure—yes, that's a thing!
  • How to recognize (and trash-talk) holes in content structure
  • How to play Crosslinked for endless team-building fun and competition!
