UXPALA Presents – Jared Spool: The Evolution Of A New UX Design Resolution
Looking at design through different levels of resolution helps us answer some important questions. Is there a difference between UX and UI, and if so, how does that change how teams should operate? What is the relationship between product design and service design? How do we start preparing for what comes next?

In this entertaining talk, Jared explores the relationships between these new levels of resolution. He’ll introduce you to a level of design beyond the organization level and how we’ll need to start designing beyond organizational boundaries. He’ll introduce you to the pioneers of this new design area, and the process designers everywhere will need to develop their expertise.

Jared will show you:
• Where designers fall into the dangerous trap of thinking too narrowly about their career
• How there’s still a frontier of unsolved issues that pioneering designers need to explore
• What the relationship between pioneers, settlers, and town planners are, when it comes to design craft

VENUE:
DISNEY’S GRAND CENTRAL AIR TERMINAL – GLENDALE, CA
In 1921, local businessman Leslie Brand decided to promote the idea of “air-mindedness” to the citizens of Glendale so he hosted a party at his home. But there was a catch: he locked the gates to his estate, preventing anyone from driving up. The only way to get into the party was to FLY in! The party was a hit, luring the best pilots and a host of Hollywood stars. It prompted Glendale to consider building a public airfield. One of their early customers was a young Amelia Earhart.
