Arthur Turksma

Online architect, design thinker, intranet strategist. During his Architecture and Building Informatics studies, Arthur started one of the first 300 websites in the world (we’re talking 1992 here). He continued at the Eindhoven University of Technology as an assistant professor for several years. In 1997 he co-founded triptic, agency for online communications. Throughout all these years in the digital world Arthur has been translating technology to ways to improve (work) life. This led him into the intranet world with Iris, context-driven and designed to help you work smarter, faster, better. Continuously looking further, Arthur was the initiator of TEDxBrainport, and as if his schedule isn’t packed enough, he’s also part of the Creative Industries committee for The Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO).

Presentation: Case – triptic

The triptic intranet, Iris, is a breath of fresh air,” stated the Nielsen Norman Group in its report on this year’s 2014 NNG Intranet Design Award winners. “It’s unusual to see such a sophisticated intranet developed by a company that does not have millions of dollars of Silicon Valley investment behind it,” said “Fun + business in a beautifully designed package,” a viewer from Digital Workplace Live tweeted. What’s the story behind this winning intranet? How was it designed? Arthur Turksma, intranet strategist at triptic and godfather of Iris, will discuss the human-centered approach he calls Intranet Design Thinking. A talk about mapping out employee journeys, about responsive design and content prioritization, about intranets becoming sexy. Join Arthur for this final case before the closing keynote and get to know Iris!
