For the next meetup we will be reading  Presto Sketching: The Magic of Simple Drawing for Brilliant Product Thinking and Design by Ben Crothers:

Our world is becoming more and more visual, but we’re still swamped every day by more words, more notifications, and more information. They all compete for our attention and erode our ability to tackle the problems. Presto Sketching provides a set of drawing techniques and templates to help you bring words and pictures together, so you can unmuddle your thinking. With this practical workbook, designers, product managers, and entrepreneurs will learn better ways to explore problems, explain concepts, and come up with well-defined ideas. Bring back your mental mojo with Presto Sketching.

We are lucky enough to have Ben joining us at our meetup to walk through the book and lead a few activities to bring out our sketchier sides. While not available yet, the book can be pre-ordered and we will send an announcement when it's launched. In meantime, you can check his awesome blog and get inspired: http://prestosketching.com/blog/

Thanks to Elle Geraghty for the wonderful suggestion and connecting us with Ben!

    Eventbrite - UX Book Club Sydney - April 2017

    Get in touch
    We use the UX Book Club Sydney Google group to let you know what we are up to.
    Alternatively, you can chat with us on @UXbookclub_SYD Le Trinh, Kevin Wilkins, Mike Colibraro and Ivy Hornibrook run the group.

    What is it all about?
    Between 25 and 45 people turn up every two months to discuss a book about user experience design. It is a fun, friendly and relaxed event where you can meet other people working in the industry.
    The book is mostly about pure UX but sometimes we have a little fun and read something that relates to design but is not just about design. 

    Depending on how many of us attend, we may split into two or more groups. We have drinks and snacks and talk about the book and the themes in the book. Confession! Not everyone has always read the book, but they will read the summary and come ready to talk about the themes of the book anyway :) There are heaps of digital meetup forums to talk UX - the bookclub is special because we get to meet in person and slow things down a little.
