CAREER DEVELOPMENT FOR INFORMATION PROFESSIONALS: IA/UX
Nick Finck, User Experience Director
Tuesday, October 16, 12:30-1:20 pm
Next up in the Career Development for Information Professionals lunchtime speaker series: Nick Finck, Director of User Experience at Deloitte Digital and a web industry veteran specializing in information architecture, interaction design, usability and user researcher. He’s created web and mobile experiences for Fortune 500 companies including Adobe, Intel, REI, Boeing, Google, and Oprah.com.
For ten years, Finck was the publisher of Digital Web Magazine, a beloved – and dearly missed – online publication for web professionals. He’s still actively involved in the web community, though, and has served as an adviser to events like SXSW Interactive, the Information Architecture Summit, Web Visions, and InfoCamp Seattle. He’s also served as a judge at the Webby Awards and the SXSW Web Awards.
