Our mission and the people behind it
PUSH UX unites professionals that aim to create compelling interactive experiences in the shape of products, apps, websites and installations, inspired by user needs and enabled by creative use of technology and critical thinking.
On two amazing days in Munich, the established UX/UI scene merges with the potential and skill set of a new generation of creative coders and technologists. That way, we provide an inspiring platform for the interactive design field.
We proudly look back on
from Mozilla, BMW, Google, Bosch, The Guardian, Vimeo, Fjord, IDEO, MESO, Art+Com and many others that presented on our stage so far.
which joined over the years coming from all over Germany, the Netherlands, the UK and even from as far as Russia, the US, India and South Korea.
Our principles guide us
Great things are made by great people
We're a team driven by design
Since our start in 2012, PUSH is made by designers for designers, not run by an events company as yet another event product to monetise on the growth of the UX field.
That means everybody behind the stage is personally passionate about the talks, the community and the experience—and we’re sure you’ll feel that at the event.
