UX Pakistan is a not-for-profit student-run design conference, organized by the student design society (INDEX) at Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS). UX Pakistan began with the dream of bridging the gap between students, professionals, and an understanding of human-centered design. UX design has been closely thought to be tied only to digital mediums and being a product of the newer age. UX Pakistan has aims to provide a holistic view of designing truly meaningful user experiences that can take all sorts of digital and non-digital forms.
UX Pakistan aims to provide a platform where ideas can be learned, shared, discussed and appreciated. LUMS, being one of the most forward thinking and multidisciplinary universities in Pakistan, provides an excellent platform for celebrating and making well designed products and services. In 2017, we organized Pakistan’s inaugural UX design conference. After observing huge success in the previous years with over 500 participants, UX Pakistan returned in 2019, bigger and better.
Well-designed and meaningful user-experiences are a collective effort between individuals with varying backgrounds that come together, bringing everything to the table. These individuals all share one thing though, an understanding of the need to solve real-world problems through out-of-the-box design thinking and collaboration amongst disciplines.
We call these people ‘Modern Creatives’. They are the thinkers of tomorrow, they are artists, designers, developers, architects, end-users and everything in-between. Not dwelling in the past, these individuals evolve constantly. Only through a conversation between these Modern Creatives, does meaningful user experience emerge.
UX Pakistan aims to bring these individuals together on one platform to share, collaborate, learn, educate and emerge as the creators of tomorrow. We aim to bring an array of experts and participants to open up new and interesting conversations across different specialities and even different worldviews. Only through such variety can we explore new avenues for meaningful user-experiences and problem-solving.
