Who Am I
A Short Guide of My Professional Self
Hoang C. Huynh!
WHO AM I …
CARE TO KNOW ABOUT ME ?
§ I was told that any “professional” should have at
least one presentation of himself on Slideshare
§ Since I really can’t help myself to follow my own
advice, probably following others, could be a
pretty nice idea
§ I’m not really good at boring people to death, so
I’m sorry, but I will do my best to keep you alive…
§ We can start talking about what I DO
SOUND INTERESTING ISN’T IT ?
I Craft Experiences
THE WORLD IS CHANGING FAST
In the end, an Experience is just a fancy name to define
Your Service Interface with Your Users
Everything, physical or digital, is composed by
constantly changing and evolving experiences
And my work is to design these kind of interfaces
I WON’T SOLVE YOUR PROBLEMS, YOU ARE
You can guess from my name that
I enjoy to work at this difficulty level
Easy - Medium - Hard - Very Hard - Asian
I’m not Jackie Chan
…so in order to get things done
ASK QUESTIONS before the FIGHT!
NOTHING IS MAGICAL
I do not do Gangnam Style
But geniality can’t be concealed
THIS IS MY PLAYING FIELD
I am an UX PRACTIONER in this AREA
ARE YOU REALLY LOOKING FOR ME?
EVERYBODY ASKS ME SOMETHING USABLE,
ACCESSIBLE, INTUITIVE, VALUABLE, EFFICIENT
User Experience Strategy Visual Design Usability
Information Architecture Interaction User Interface
Service Design Concept Ideation Agile Frontend
Prototyping Wireframe Project Management Coaching
Assessment Research Interviews User Tests Co-Design
SO I GAVE YOU A VERY BAD DESIGNED TAG CLOUD:
CAN YOU SPOT AT LEAST 5 IMPROVEMENT POINTS?
Hint: They are 8, and counting…
TODAY I LEARNT SOMETHING NEW
The only "intuitive" interface is the nipple.
After that it's all learned.
THINGS I WORK WITH
DO NOT ASK FOR WHAT I KNOW
THE THINGS I WANT TO
LEARN ARE MUCH MORE
WHAT I DO EVERYDAY
§ I am working as a UX Consultant
by establishing an UX culture in companies,
providing directions, methodologies, practices.
§ I am mentoring some Startups
by help them focusing and refining their ideas,
using participatory and co-design techniques.
§ I am managing Digital Projects
§ I am a valuable (pick one) when needed
