Come to the nexUX Meetup!

With Alisa Herr, founder & CEO of Unity Digital Agency

What's next in UX: Informing the public via data-driven storytelling

We all have stories to tell. Whether it’s why your business is better than your competition, how you got to where you are today, or about the latest political kerfuffle, data makes any story more engaging. At this talk, we will look at good and bad data visualizations, examine how they simplify information, and explore how incorporating the good ones can clarify and strengthen stories. You’ll leave with data, inspiration, and tools for making your data more understandable to a wider audience. Please bring your questions to the event!

As always with our meetups, this is not a "sit back and listen" meeting, but a chance for us to bring together a cross disciplinary group of people to think about the relationship between UX, technology, and art. Mostly though, we'll get to know one another, and have some fun.
