MEX Sessions

  1. An exploration of users' relationship with location, including the design techniques and wider strategy required for building great location-aware user experiences. Peter brings a wealth experience from designing WebOS experiences at Palm, Nokia's Meego-powered N9 and mobile phones to his role leading design for HERE, Nokia's mapping business. He proposes a design approach which engages the users' emotions and refines mundane, everyday interactions into moments of beauty.

  2. James Haliburton first participated at MEX (pmn.co.uk/mex/) several years ago, going on to be instrumental in the work of TAT, the Swedish user experience company acquired by Blackberry. In September 2013 we invited James back to MEX to share his insight into our theme of user modes as the key ingredients of digital experience, a year after co-founding his new studio, TOPP. James' MEX session focuses on designing for the receptive moments when users are motivated to shift their mode, such as the transition from communicating a checkin to exploring local recommendations. He discusses the role of design in surfacing moments of extraordinary experience within digital platforms, citing examples and suggesting techniques to lead users from one mode to another. James challenged both MEX participants, and us as curators of the event, to recognise receptiveness as a key factor linking user modes.

  3. Jason DaPonte came to MEX in December 2010 to explore the evolution of storytelling in a multi-touchpoint digital environment. In addition to leading several early MEX working sessions on this theme as part of Pathway #2, Jason formerly led editorial for the BBC’s mobile channels. He went on to found his own agency, Enter The Swarm, pioneering new approaches to multi-touchpoint digital experiences. His MEX Session shares examples and techniques.

  4. Sofia Svanteson returned to MEX in December 2009 to share ideas on the creative process for digital user experience. Sofia is a pioneer in digital creativity, having worked with Razorfish in the early days of the dotcom era, before founding her own agency - Ocean Observations - one of the first and most acclaimed specialists in crafting mobile experiences. Her 2009 MEX Session - one of several contributions she has made to MEX over the years - focuses on different approaches to creativity, addressing questions about leadership style. She offers particular insight into how process evolves as agencies break outside sector specialisms, such as mobile, and expand into multi-touchpoint digital experiences across TV, PC and embedded systems.

  5. Oren Horev, at the time a user experience strategist for Plan, spoke at MEX in May 2010. He shared the results of an ethnographic study into the mobile user experience of 'van man', a colloquial term in British society for the legion of delivery drivers and tradesman who drive tens of thousands of miles each year in their white-coloured vans. Horev draws lessons from the ethnographic results, explaining how it prompted new thinking about multi-touchpoint digital experiences and how they could be delivered in the users' working environment.
