Josh Clark

Occured on September 22, 2016

The Gritty Details

Josh came to the Sparkbox training space to equip attendees with the perspective, process, resources, and technique needed to start working with emerging interfaces right now—stitching together digital touchpoints through conversational UI, the internet of things, gestural interfaces, and more.

From the Workshop:

Josh Clark shared a whirling fandango of practical techniques and interaction examples to show how designers can plan and craft a UX for this whole complex ecosystem, not just for the individual device. The nature of UI design is cha-cha-changing; it's important to keep up with the tempo of this multidevice mambo!

Before the internet swallowed him up, Josh was a producer of national PBS programs at Boston’s WGBH. He shared his three words of Russian with Mikhail Gorbachev, strolled the ranch with Nancy Reagan, hobnobbed with Rockefellers, and wrote trivia questions for a primetime game show. In 1996, he created the uberpopular “Couch-to-5K” (C25K) running program, which has helped millions of skeptical would-be exercisers take up jogging. (His motto is the same for fitness as it is for software user experience: no pain, no pain.)
