Summer design lab with AND Digital - London

Science & Technology

Welcome to the Design Lab Community.

We're a friendly bunch! We are a community of designers that get together to talk shop, share ideas and designs, and get to know one another. This month we are supported and hosted by the awesome team at AND.Digital.

Ticket information

You must have an Eventbrite ticket to attend.

Raffle & Giveaways
Thanks to our sponsors at Sketch we will be giving away two FREE Sketch licenses in a raffle. Show up, collect your lucky number raffle ticket and the winners will be announced at the end.

Do you want to donate or gift something to the community for a raffle? Maybe a conference ticket, maybe some lush stationery, maybe a puppy (only joking, puppies are for life, not just for raffles). Then give us a shout and we'll add it to the raffle.

Please be on time. No entry past 7 pm.

Talk one: Knowledge of the Magicians: How close-up magic can inform our understanding of human behaviour

There are some fundamental UX principles that are important to keep in mind and harness when designing digital products. Magic, as a performance artform, can shed some light and hence further our understanding of some of these principles, by revealing ways that humans behave (and how magicians take advantage of these behaviours). This talk will cover three areas in particular: storytelling, attention and wonder.

Speaker: Paavan Buddhdev
