Design for What’s Next

with author and #push18 speaker Josh Clark | October 18th

Spend a day exploring the web’s emerging interactions and how you can put them to work today. Your guide is designer Josh Clark, author of Designing for Touch and ambassador of the near future.

The day begins with a survey of familiar platforms—desktop and mobile—to uncover the new solutions that are replacing yesterday’s best practices. From there, we’ll move into newer design tools—speech, bots, physical interfaces, artificial intelligence, and more—to see how these fresh-from-the-future technologies fit into your everyday products and processes.

What you will take away:

You’ll learn the tools and techniques for prototyping and launching these new interfaces, but you’ll also learn the answers to foundational questions for all your projects.


  • How should we evaluate new technologies?
  • What are the emerging design patterns and principles for these new interactions?
  • What’s the role of user research and prototypes?
  • LHow can play and experimentation lead to actual product?
  • What are designers’ responsibilities when rolling out new tech?
  • How do you support audiences that haven’t yet adopted the fresh and fancy?

This is a workshop for people of all skill levels. Pencils, markers and paper will be supplied. At the end of this workshop, you’ll leave the day inspired to create—and ready for action.
