Gaming

Relevant game mechanics, caring social dynamics, and frequent genuine feedback compel users to engage and stay for intrinsic rewards.

Play

Play is a vital human state, like dreaming. Playing helps us safely experiment, learn with gusto, and prepare for life’s challenges.

Research

User testing, focus groups, and play testing allow us to iterate our way to experiences that are worth repeating.

Data

How can we put all your data in context, and create communities that support personal growth? When we know how users can “win,” machine learning can find new user flows.

Prototype

Until we make a prototype, all teammate assertions are true. Rapid prototypes are theory in practice, and 9 times out of 10, a prototype ends all debate.

World Building

Big picture thinking, or world building, encourages “end game thinking” and planning beyond the current sprint. This helps the team define how users “win”.

Present

Give back. Speak about a topic you love. Frequent, engaging presentations ensure that as we grow in expertise, we don’t lose the ability to clearly share what we know.

A bit about me

 

As a Principal Learning Designer with Autodesk, a leader in free software to design and make a better world, Bill Sabram created a learning prototype to help students, educators, and industries explore a peer-to-peer learning network. (autode.sk/commandmap) This work was featured in the CEO's opening keynote at AU 2017. 

As the Lead Game Designer at MeYou Health, a pioneer in engaging, scientifically-validated, open social health products, Bill fused game design with behavior change theory to deliver data-driven web and mobile products that were fun and effective.

key skills:

• Visionary: Create, test, balance and specify a design vision that users love. Bill creates compelling experiences that are playful, engaging, and transformative.

• Leader: Passionate learner and problem solver skilled at integrating research, observations and fun into compelling solutions that inspire.

• Thinker: Self-motivated, resourceful professional skilled with tools of communication, writing, design process, user research, and technology. Bill sees connections that others don't. Software bugs can't hide from his trained eye.
