Are you right-brained or left-brained designer? (A Journey with UX Design)

In this presentation, we’ll explore design as a discipline, focused in particular on user experience design as a profession. Are right-brained or left-brained designers considered better experience designers? We will take a look at real examples of the design process and see which side of the brain is used when and how in the process. Besides exploring the creative process, I’ll demonstrate how the use of data and analytics in the user experience design are crucial to the design process and decision making.
