An ongoingly-updated feed of the conferences and events we’re anticipating in the coming months:
Clarity is a design systems conference focused on how we work together. We provide tools and standards to scale across an increasing number of devices, platforms, and products. But real success comes when people align around a shared vision and language. Diverse perspectives for design, development, and product unite so more people can be a part of the conversation. At Clarity, we elevate our skills through multi-faceted inclusion, empathy, technology, creativity, and collaboration.
As always, UX STRAT USA will have carefully curated presentations and workshops focused on the intersection of business strategy, user experience, customer experience, product design, and service design. UX STRAT is single track, which promotes a strong sense of community, and provides ample networking opportunities. Each year this event helps attendees take experience design to the next level in their organizations.
During two days, we will exchange on approaches, tools and cases of holistic and systemic design practice, applied to the enterprise itself as our material to design with. Using the Enterprise Design Framework as a guiding tool, we will make sense of a variety of enterprise challenges in our talks and master classes, and share approaches and solutions directly applicable in practice. Join us as participant, contributor or sponsor!

A full day of learning – October 4, 2019 – a two-track day of local UX speakers sharing their knowledge and experience.
If we want to connect, find new ideas, and create better things, we should reframe everything. Because when we see things from another perspective—or another’s perspective—we unlock a different part of our mind. In 2019, MWUX is all about reframing our reality—our job, our community, our capabilities, and the future of UX.
This October, in Grand Rapids, Michigan, let’s enter a new frame of mind and see what happens next.

A conference exploring the concept of the Web as a material.
We have lost the apprentice / master relationship in the digital world. Spending years getting our hands dirty with an expert, learning slowly and really understanding the material rather than the framework. We need to be asking ourselves what sacrifices should we be making for the convenience of our customers rather than shortcuts for ourselves.
What properties of materialness exists in the Web is what this conference is meant to explore.
