RoadMap is the only experience design conference for the technology industry. Our speaker lineup is filled with people who have found success treating great design as an imperative rather than an afterthought.
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) September 13, 2013
GigaOM, a global technology media company, has announced new speakers and sessions for its third-annual RoadMap conference, being held November 5-6 in San Francisco. A two-day experience design conference for the technology industry, GigaOM RoadMap will feature leading designers and technology innovators who are creating the next generation of user experience and connected products.
How people interact with their world is increasingly driven by connectivity and technology. An explosion of mobile apps, cloud-based services and data has led technology companies to a simple understanding: user experience is part of business logic. This defining shift in how technology businesses will approach product design in the future puts an emphasis on creating smart and emotional experiences that are as important as the underlying technologies themselves.
“RoadMap is the only experience design conference for the technology industry,” says Om Malik, GigaOM founder and RoadMap co-chair. “Our speaker lineup is filled with people who have found success treating great design as an imperative rather than an afterthought.”
Entrepreneurs and designers who are creating such compelling user experiences will take the stage at GigaOM RoadMap, including:
- Kevin Systrom, Instagram
- Tony Fadell, Nest
- Bret Taylor, Quip
- Scott Thomas, The Noun Project
- Robert Brunner, Ammunition
- Erik Spiekermann, Edenspiekermann
- Jack Dorsey, Square
- Danae Ringelmann, Indiegogo
- Joe Gebbia, Airbnb
- John Maeda, Rhode Island School of Design
- Sean Rad, Tinder
Topics to be discussed include:
- Building the visual language of the web
- Typeface on screens: the invisible building blocks of brands
- Design by the numbers: how the crowd is changing creation
- How Moore’s Law is influencing design
- Redesigning the user experience of everything
