Next week I’ll be part of an NZ team competing in Sydney against the Aussies to build a website for a charity at CeBIT’09
We’ll have just 24 hours from initial briefing to completion so we’ll cover the full journey from paper through to pixels, against the clock.
My role as User Experience guy is to play the user advocate. Making sure the Information Architecture maps well with the goals and needs of both the audience and the charity.
I’m thinking along the lines of ‘Le Mans’ UX design race;
- standing start
- all nighter
- …but only one set of tyres
- and no change of driver
Formal User Research and Usability methods are out, number eight wire is in …It’s time to improvise.
The event is called Full Code Press and our team are the Code Blacks.
Australia vs New Zealand, live at the CeBIT 09 conference in Sydney, 12-13 May.
