Would you like to have lifetime access to the most groundbreaking thinking in the world of Experience Design? Instead of traveling to a training course, you and your colleagues can hear the latest insights on the most important design topics right from your office.

Watching a UIE Virtual Seminar couldn't be simpler. You'll view the presentation in your web browser and listen to it with your computer speakers. (We've tested the seminar using Firefox and Internet Explorer on both Macs and PCs with great success.) All you'll need is a web browser equipped with the Macromedia Flash Player (version 6 or newer) and a connection to the Internet.

Seminar Description

If your site has more than one page, it has a gallery page. When a user lands on your gallery page, it has only one job: to help the user decide which content page they want to end up on. The best gallery pages do that quickly and efficiently. The worst, well, it gets ugly.

We spend great effort making sure our content pages have exactly what our users need. But if they don’t reach those pages because of confusing or complicated galleries, it’s all for naught.

In this presentation, Jared will share some of UIE’s most important findings about gallery page design. You’ll learn:

Jared will show you some of the latest design thinking from Netflix, Bureau of Labor Statistics, SonyEricsson, and Citibank, to name a few.

Instructor Biography

Jared M. Spool is the founder of User Interface Engineering and a co-founder of Center Centre.

If you’ve ever seen Jared speak about user experience design, you know that he’s probably the most effective and knowledgeable communicator on the subject today. He’s been working in the field of usability and experience design since 1978, before the term “usability” was ever associated with computers.

He is also the conference chair and keynote speaker at the annual UI Conference and UX Immersion Conference, and manages to squeeze in a fair amount of writing time. He is author of the book Web Usability: A Designer’s Guide and co-author of Web Anatomy: Interaction Design Frameworks that Work. You can find his writing at uie.com and follow his adventures on the twitters at @jmspool.
