      IxDA Boston Re-Launch 2019

      IxDA Boston is back! Come and join IxDA Boston and members of the Greater Boston design community to celebrate our re-launch the Boston chapter of IxDA! Enjoy refreshments and networking with your peers, as well as a thought-provoking speaker and discussion. Health-Centered Design Today it’s easier than ever to design highly usable experiences that degrade the health of the people who use them. Whether we work on consumer apps or enterprise software, the choices we make as designers directly affect the physical, mental, social, and professional health of our users. So how do we design for values that promote a culture of health? Beyond “design thinking,” how do we embed health-thinking into our products and design decisions? Our speaker, Jenka Gurfinkel, will look at the legacy of persuasive design philosophy that has led to our current, coercive technology present, and explore a vision for an alternate design future, including case studies and practical decision-making approaches for aligning design with values that promote long-term user and product health.
