What are the principles of cross-cultural UX design? How can we use them to solve for different aspects of cross-cultural user experience analysis and design? Aaron Marcus, president of Aaron Marcus and Associates (AM+A), will share how he and his company are finding solutions to global design and communications problems as well as the company’s ongoing research comparing Chinese and Western UX design principles.
