What are Local Groups?

IDF Local Groups will expand your local career network - whether you are interested in learning new skills, looking for new job opportunities, new clients for your company, or a great new dedicated employee.

An IDF Local Group is a group of people who are just as passionate about design as you are. Each Local Group holds physical meetings and the agenda is to get inspired, discuss, have fun, learn and improve your career. Meetings take place in a relaxed and fun atmosphere at a local cafe, an office building, or an auditorium depending on the agenda for the meeting. For each Local Group there is also an online Local Group so you can stay in touch and help update each other on local events.

Meet-up description

Desperately Seeking… Something

with Barry Briggs

Think about the utility of your favourite apps and websites, and of all ways they enable you to FIND, CREATE and MANAGE stuff. Whether it’s a seemingly trivial activity like taking notes or managing a TO-DO list, or something more obviously complex like doing your weekly grocery shop online, the digital services we use regularly are rich with features and functionality, and evolve to include new features regularly.

But as a designer, how do you know which features and functionality you should add to your product?

This talk will look at how we as humans FIND information. Using Donna Spencer’s “4 modes of Information Seeking” as a springboard it will demonstrate how features and functionality can be designed to support specific information seeking modes, and look at how users move between modes during a longer journey, how they might transition between different behaviours during a single activity, and what we as designers can do to support this.
