Description:

Join us for an informal discussion with Alex Wheeler, Sr. UX Designer at Riot games about UX Design in the gaming industry. He will be talking about how to craft and communicate your UX vision, the different roles UX designers can have on a game, some of the unique challenges they face in the gaming industry, how you can prepare for a career in gaming UX, and much more.

This is not your typical slide show / speaker event! The hosts will come prepared with some questions to ask, but we hope that we can all have a casual conversation about the topic. We are looking forward to seeing you all there.

About the Speaker:

Hello! I’m Alex. I’ve been a UX designer for many years, the last 5 of which have been at Riot Games. Before that I worked at various companies and agencies around the US. Before that, and a lifetime ago, I competed in several games from shooters to strategy and in-between. When I’m not at work I tend to almost always be playing games. On the rare occasion I’m not I’m probably enjoying food and Netflix. Recently I’ve been pouring time into Valheim, WoW, and FTB Revelation.
