Designing for Progressive Disclosure

Progressive Disclosure: Not just for software anymore.

Come and learn how we revised this traditionally software-focused design method and modernized it for new problems. For wicked problems. For problems of physical and experiential space as well as for digital and software platforms.

Since publication, our article on Designing for Progressive Disclosure has been actively promoted within the design community as an actionable way to dramatically improve the UX of physical, digital, and environmental designs. This workshop will be part-learning, part-interactive workshop that will walk participants through our 4-step approach for applying progressive disclosure to the wicked problems of “making (inclusive, creative, and enjoyable) space” within the growing city of Austin.

Whether you are a software designer, consumer product designer, design hobbyists, spatial designers, or just a citizen who love Austin, you will leave this workshop with concrete skills, and the ability to apply our method to all areas of work and life.
