Pick Your Potion - Interaction Design Through Mixology

Interaction Design Through Mixology

Time: August 28, 2012 from 6:30pm to 8:30pm


From happy hours to conferences, social drinking is a big part of networking for designers. But drinking has become more than beer on tap and scotch on the rocks. Cocktails have evolved and Mixology has become an art form in and of itself.  This method of uniting flavors and layering alcohol is often complex but leads to savory experiences for patrons – sound familiar?

Mixology is very similar to interaction design. Both involve iterating around a concept, trial and error to find the best taste, best design for the end user. On August 28th, Bresslergroup’s Interaction Designer and in-house mixologist, David Farkas, will be giving  IxDA- DC tips on how to make a good drink while creating awesome interaction designs. From the similarities in user testing to concept development, David will discuss how interaction designers can define and evaluate their methodology and tools by exploring the process and training of bartenders and mixologist.
