Focusing on designing and delivering great experiences, Bold Insight, a user experience research agency, and The Office of Experience (OX), an experience design and digital innovation consultancy, co-hosted a charity event in Chicago on November 13. Similar to a Bold Insight event in June, the casino-themed night provided winners with the opportunity to select their favorite charity to receive donations from Bold Insight and OX.
“This event is a win-win. We are able to make a contribution to a variety of non-profit organizations and bring together UX leaders in the community. It’s a chance to connect professionally and have a little fun, while at the same time donate to worthy causes,” said Robert Schumacher, Managing Director of Bold Insight.
Donations ranging from $150 to $300 were given to the following charities: Project C.U.R.E., Hearts to Art, Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies, Children’s Place Association, Gi Gi’s Play house, One Million Degrees, Hope For The Day, Chicago Public Schools through The New Chance: Arts & Literature Fund, and Friends of the Chicago River.
Carlos Manalo, Founder of OX, added, “We believe that The Experience is the Brand® and, for this event, all the UX leaders who represented their brands definitely raised the bar in terms of excitement, networking, and connecting for phenomenal causes. We’re humbled and excited to have been a part of this process.”
