New Hampshire User Experience Professionals Association

Welcome to the New Hampshire UXPA

The New Hampshire Chapter of the User Experience Professionals' Association (UXPA) provides networking and professional development opportunities for usability professionals, information architects, interaction designers, and other user experience professionals and students in the Seacoast and Southern NH regions. Our mission is to foster the growth of the local usability community and to provide an environment for members to exchange information on tips, tools, methodologies, and technologies related to usability.

Monthly Meetings

NH UXPA meets every month in various locations around the Seacoast and Southern NH regions. We work hard to rotate event locations to try and make it possible for all members to attend a meeting. Our meetings include invited speakers, group discussions, workshops, demonstrations, local studio tours, and social gatherings. NH UXPA meetings and events are ALWAYS open to anyone who is interested in attending. Membership to the UPA is NOT required.

Customers remember experiences, not your logo. Join us for the NH UXPA January meeting, where Steven Fisher will discuss the shift in user experience as the lead role in defining and expressing brand in a company. We will explore and demonstrate the economic relationship between brand and experience. We will also discuss the sometimes adversarial issues that come between those on the branding side and those on the user experience side. We will discuss case studies from the speaker's personal experience with Coca-Cola, American Airlines, Merrill Lynch and SeaChange International. We will then present a six step roadmap to achieve success in this New Brand Order.
