Niveda Harishankar, User Experience (UX) Design, for Amazon Marketplace was our special guest lecturer on Wednesday, February 8, 2017. She skyped into our class to talk to us about the role of UX in the design process at Amazon and more broadly in the process of human-centered design. She shared her thoughts with us about design heuristics, prototyping in low to high fidelity, affordance, interface feedback, and mapping the physical world into interface spaces.

She talked about her experiences moving from college life into her first professional job, her experiences at the Amazon Go store in Seattle, and the “Magic of objects and spaces” in Internet-of-Things (IoT) designs for proximity interactions. What a fun and informative evening!
