Stéphanie Walter's Talk

Designing Beyond The Happy Path

September 14 – 9:40 AM

Mockups reflect an idealized version of the product: the perfect text size, faultless content, taken during a perfect user journey. They fall apart once confronted with real content, technical limitations, and the vast diversity of user need. We call those scenarios “edge cases”. However, these aren't exceptions but an essential part of the user experience.

In this talk, Stéphanie aims to redefine our approach to design by incorporating these 'edge cases' in the design process from the start. Doing so, we can build more robust, inclusive and scalable products.
