Exciting news: Cheryl has signed with UX industry stalwarts Rosenfeld Media to publish her first book, Design Beyond Devices, in late 2020. In Cheryl's own words: In Design Beyond Devices, I’ll explore the wide and complex systems, UX design, and service design required for truly multimodal, cross-device experiences. Whether you're grappling with multiple input modalities like touch and voice for the first time, or grappling with the end-to-end considerations for a multi-device ecosystem, you'll walk away with new frameworks and tools for deconstructing these complex problems into more manageable patterns and features. Ready to explore the final frontier of product design? Sign up at the Design Beyond Devices site to be the first to know about pre-sales, releases, and related community events with Cheryl!
Ideaplatz founder Cheryl Platz had the honor of speaking with BBC Radio 4's venerable program, "The Digital Human". The episode, entitled "Subservience", explores our relationship with our digital assistants - and how that relationship may unintentionally influence our relationships with other humans. The episode aired live on Oct 22, 2018 and is available on demand from the BBC website here. Podcast links will be updated here once available. Did the conversation spark ideas? Are you a business owner looking to explore conversational UI, or a designer looking to learn how to deliver voice designs? A few ways you can get started: Join Cheryl's full-day voice design workshop in Budapest on Oct 31. A handful of tickets remain.
