Examples of MEX Sessions

Since 2005, MEX has been the place where participants define the future of digital user experience, across mobiles, PCs, tablets, wearables and more. We invite speakers ranging from CEOs to the most promising new design students (and we love to hear new proposals). The programme is curated around our constantly evolving MEX themes.

Peter Skillman on users' relationship with location
#mex14, London, March 2014


Summary:
Peter Skillman's work needs little introduction: after a career at IDEO, he went on to an instrumental role leading UX for the legendary mobile company Palm. Peter has subsequently led teams shaping the design of several critically acclaimed Nokia products, including heading mobile phone user interface and service design. We welcomed him to MEX for the first time in March 2014, where - as head of design for Nokia's HERE mapping business - he gave an exploration of users' relationship with location, including the design techniques and wider strategy required for building great location-aware user experiences. In this MEX Session, he proposes an approach which engages the users' emotions and refines mundane, everyday interactions into moments of beauty.

James Haliburton on designing for users' receptive mode
#mex13, London, September 2013


Summary:
James Haliburton first participated at MEX several years ago, going on to be instrumental in the work of TAT, the Swedish user experience company acquired by Blackberry. In September 2013 we invited James back to MEX to share his insight into our theme of user modes as the key ingredients of digital experience, a year after co-founding his new studio, TOPP. James' MEX session focuses on designing for the receptive moments when users are motivated to shift their mode, such as the transition from communicating a checkin to exploring local recommendations. He discusses the role of design in surfacing moments of extraordinary experience within digital platforms, citing examples and suggesting techniques to lead users from one mode to another. James challenged both MEX participants, and us as curators of the event, to recognise receptiveness as a key factor linking user modes.
