For fifteen years we've had a 'Crit Room' to create dialogue with web site designers and explore their visions and implementations. Now that there are  mobile applications with different design demands, it's time to give designers of these experiences a place to expose what they have done to the same critical review. Come to see examples of the best, and learn what other designers think about them.

Modeled on the art school critique, Web sites are volunteered in advance by MW2011 attendees who are present to pose the problems they faced and respond to commentary.

If you'd like to volunteer your site, please contact MW2011.

How it Works: The Crit Room is an interactive conversation between the presenter (whose site is the topic of discussion), the panel, and those in the session.

We have two hours in which to review four sites (1/2 hour each). In that time, we'll run the same process for each site...

  • brief intro (1 min)
  • the site representative will present the site briefly (max. 5 minutes) highlighting the challenges they face and the areas where they'd like feedback.
  • each of the two panelists will respond with their reactions and questions for the representative (5 minutes each)
  • we open up the commentary to the group in the room (10 minutes)
