DesignLab: UX Whiteboard 101

The whiteboard challenge, an exercise anyone interested in a UX position will most likely do, is a solid way for prospective employers to get into the mind of the designer. Join Dennis Wemyss, as he educates how to navigate nailing a whiteboard challenge for work; from battling assumptions with questioning, understanding every stakeholder’s needs, and using psychology to get into our users’ heads. Then test out your new knowledge with an hour-long wireframe challenge. Make sure to bring research on the business you would want to create the wireframe for. We’ll provide breakfast and whiteboards.
