As user experience professionals we focus on making the easiest, most intuitive, solution for our users, 
but sometimes its useful to reflect on the effect it has by doing "para-functionality".

Taking ideas from art, architecture and design, this workshop will through some exercises and examples let you discover ways of designing that can expose insights to a problemm and its potential solutions. 

Para-functionality is when you look at an issue is a new and different way, that is not always the best for the user, to find new solutions and design to solve it.

This work, like user experience work in general, benefits from working in teams to build upon the different ideas and experiences of the team members.

We will work with every day experiences that you will be familiar with and do para-functional design on them.

The results can not only be thought provoking but also let us reflect on what experiences we are designing.

Primarily for: Project managers, Architects, UX specialists, Product developers, Managers, Designers, Others
