ABOUT IXDD

World Interaction Design Day is an annual event where the design fraternity comes together as a united global community to show how interaction design improves the human condition.

24 September 2019 was celebrated as the World Interaction Design Day globally, with the aim to have a positive, long-lasting impact by facilitating activities that support dialogue and outcomes.

ValueLabs hosted the IxDD 2019 Hyderabad chapter, in partnership with Adobe and IxDA.
The theme for 2019 was

TRUST AND RESPONSIBILITY
TRUST AND RESPONSIBILITY

In the unpredictable digital world, as technology evolves continuously, it not only presents us with newer ways of interactions but also brings us new and unique challenges. These challenges are unforeseen and often transgress the sanctity of our lives. In such tumultuous, and disruptive times, how might we design for Trust and Responsibility?

DESIGN PROCESS
Planning & Overview

In order to ensure a smooth and great journey of curating such an event, we at UXG, made sure that no stone was unturned. We created a checklist of action items and distributed the tasks to every team member. The checklist and status of the tasks were reviewed regularly on a daily basis. This ensured that the blockers, if any, were addressed in a timely manner and also ensured that the team is aware of where exactly they are in the whole process. Through the process, every team member was enthusiastic and sincere to the timelines specified, which helped in successfully pulling off such an event!

AN IDENTITY FOR IXDD 2019 HYDERABAD

A brand new identity was forged to communicate the message effectively.

Apart from the online presence, we also created limited edition merchandises for IxDD event, which included a tote bag, pencils, notebooks, postcards, badges.

SOCIAL MEDIA PROMOTION

We conducted "DESIGNATHON", a 24-hour compelling challenge to collaborate and compete with the best design students across the globe, especially those who are passionate about creating meaningful interactions for responding to evolving needs in our community.

TIMELINE
PROBLEM STATEMENT

With the current uncertain geo-political condition globally, there are many social and cultural challenges. Emerging technologies show us a promising future but then again are strained with questions of privacy and adoptability.

The teams are required to come up with ideas, services and interactions which would keep the user needs at the centre, and show how your solution will be benefitting them, and builds trust in what you design.

The theme selected should reflect where the collective empathy lies in a given social context.

IXDD 2019 TAKEAWAYS

Post the event, we did hold on to the important moments, by mailing the delegates the key takeaways from each speech and the panel discussion. This helped them to retain what the event meant to deliver on the same day.

We also built an experience map which highlighted the key elements of the event, and how it can positively impact the design community based here. This helps to build a birds eye view of the bygone event, and helps us prepare and look forward to the next!
