Drawing Insights from Research
27 September from 17:30-19:00

Venue: Open Window

Ladies that UX aims to create a space for Johannesburg women in UX to build professional and personal relationships with other women in the UX community. Through engaging and talking about experiences, we hope to provide women with the chance to support each other, push the UX boundaries, and promote female empowerment, skill and talent.

What to expect?

Research is one of the core aspects of designing human-centric products and services. It ensures that solutions are based on the emotions, needs and frustrations of people who will use those products…ensuring that the product will be useful and valuable.

Have you ever done a plethora of research and then realised, in a bit of a panic, that you aren’t quite sure what to do with it all now? After conducting interviews, usability testing and field research – how do we take the cold research and turn it into actual insights?

This month, Taryn Subramoney will share her views on synthesising information from qualitative research. We will practically apply Taryn’s methodologies to a real-life research project and interpret the data to improve a specific experience.

Who is Taryn Subramoney?

Taryn is a User experience designer at Freethinking Consultants, She has worked mainly in the banking industry (Standard Bank, Nedbank and ABSA capital). Taryn has a master’s degree in industrial psychology which elevates her passion for understanding user behaviour.

In her spare time, she likes keeping fit, reading psychological thrillers and learning about meditation.

Special note:
Lift Club
We know that getting to and from Centurion might be difficult so we will be starting up a lift club. If you would like to offer your driving services, need a lift, want to do a group Uber, or have any other suggestions, please get in touch with us (ltux.jhb@gmail.com), so that we can start setting up pick-up and drop-off locations.
