UX Night at Google Campus (2 Talks)
February 25 @ 18:30 - 20:30 UTC+2
This month we’re going to discuss humor in User Experience Design (Dose UX have to be so serious?) and how can we embrace uncertainty and use it as a tool to reach levels of creativity we never thought possible, especially when we are inherently wired to avoid it.
UX, Why so Serious? Humor in User Experience Design
Somewhere between perception and emotion, in one of the most fascinating corners of human communication, humor lives happily ever after. When designing UX, humor can be a very powerful, meaningful and uplifting tool.
Humor is created through surprising connections, with precise comic timing. It laughs with us, not at us, and when used correctly – it will turn the experiences we create go from good to unforgettable. So why, how and when do we make it oh so good?

In a highly volatile tech landscape and an accelerating speed of business, we can never know all the variables. We often feel that uncertain circumstances stand in our way to fulfilling our creative potential. The real question is – how can we embrace uncertainty and use it as a tool to reach levels of creativity we never thought possible, especially when we are inherently wired to avoid it?
This talk is based on Yonatan’s book, The Other Ideas: Art, Digital Products and the Creative Mind, a book for individuals that want to embrace and thrive on uncertainty as a tool to reach their highest creative and do work that matters.
The event is in Hebrew.
Registration is open to both men and women.
