Meet-Up Details

Hi IxDF Seattle, let’s meet online while UX Designer, Aimee Danger talks about unique challenges of designing for kids and teens!

About Aimee: Over 10 years of product design experience in IoT, wearables, AR/VR, web, and mobile working with brands such as Nike, Intel, GE, and most currently, Amazon.  In all her work, she incorporates and evangelizes the human-centered design approach to drive equity, accessibility, and universal design on products and services.

Meetup agenda (from Aimee): In 2017 I was the lead UX designer on an interactive, screen-free learning platform for kids aged 2-6 (play rug) with Intel. As bleeding-edge technology, this required extensive in-house user testing. This experience, along with my work with NWEA as the lead designer on their student testing platform, gave me valuable insights into the challenges of designing digital products for kids. Fun fact: you should design as if users have visual, motor, and cognitive disabilities if you're designing for people under the age of 8. In this presentation, I will share some of the insights and tips I learned from working with people aged 4-18.
