UX Australia 2009

Idealism increases in direct proportion to one's distance from the problemI presented some thoughts around design pragmatism and idealism at UX Australia. I’ve uploaded the presentation to Slideshare, Pragmatism or Idealism: a user experience conundrum.

The presentation focussed on some of the interesting philosophical challenges I’ve found myself facing as I’ve taken user experience leadership roles on projects involving high degrees of complexity – and thus compromise.

I will extract the key themes from the presentation into a post over the next few days, but for the time being these images capture the essence of what I was attempting to convey.

Sometimes good has to be good enough

Design is compromise

I believe audio files and slides from the conference will be published soon. I am sure I’ll post links some of the talks I particularly enjoyed once I track them down.

  1. Great slides Iain. Did you know that you can embed your slideshare slides directly in wordpress.com using these instructions?
