Object-Oriented UX (OOUX) is a digital design philosophy that respects the fact that people think in objects. Our brains have evolved to recognize solid objects that adhere to the laws of physics. But digital environments are not beholden to the laws of physics, which can wreak havoc on our users’ ability to understand them.

OOUX gives you a new set of principles so you can create naturally intuitive apps, websites, and software. With these principles, you'll avoid designing objects that are too abstract or visually inconsistent. The best part? Intuitive objects are not only easier for users to understand, they are easier to design and build, too.

In this interactive lecture, you'll learn:

  • The fundamentals of the OOUX philosophy and the newest cognitive science and psychology that backs it up.
  • How to identify four massive UX fails and how to AVOID THEM.
  • The basics of identifying objects and how this can help you tackle complexity.
  • The ropes of the ORCA process. Spoiler: ORCA stands for Objects, Relationships, CTAs, and Attributes. Clarity around these 4 pillars are key to intuitive and solid UX.
