What is the UX Challenge?
A five-day Design Sprint during which you will analize, evaluate and re-design the User eXperience of digital products and services brought by companies from Trentino. Students and young professionals will form groups and work with UX expert mentors to improve the capability of apps and software to meet users’ needs and expectations.
How does it work?
Each team of solver will be assigned one digital product/service to work on. Over the two days, teams will utilize user reasearch and UX design techniques, also involving selected end users via the Smartcrowds.net channel. After having understood products’s value proposition, teams will first focus on its pain points; after that they will explore unserved needs; they will then identify suggestion for improvement of the usability, and design new interface mockups.
Why should I participate?
Because you’ll get to know other students and professionals passionate of digital interaction; you will apply the leading UX design and service design methodologies to real products; you’ll have a chance to challenge your UX design skills, learning from mentors, and being noticed by the participanting companies.
