New Hampshire User Experience Professionals Association

Welcome to the New Hampshire UXPA

The New Hampshire Chapter of the User Experience Professionals' Association (UXPA) provides networking and professional development opportunities for usability professionals, information architects, interaction designers, and other user experience professionals and students in the Seacoast and Southern NH regions. Our mission is to foster the growth of the local usability community and to provide an environment for members to exchange information on tips, tools, methodologies, and technologies related to usability.

Monthly Meetings

NH UXPA meets every month in various locations around the Seacoast and Southern NH regions. We work hard to rotate event locations to try and make it possible for all members to attend a meeting. Our meetings include invited speakers, group discussions, workshops, demonstrations, local studio tours, and social gatherings. NH UXPA meetings and events are ALWAYS open to anyone who is interested in attending. Membership to the UPA is NOT required.

Join our Mailing List on Yahoo! Groups

Joining our mailing list ensures you will receive timely information and reminders of our events and activities. This mailing list is also the best way to communicate with other NH UXPA members. We invite all group members to post their experiences, challenges, job opportunities, and other UX related conversation to the group.

Bill Gribbons on "Experience Inspired Innovation"

To learn more and register, please go to:

This presentation examines the predictable path traveled by disruptive products or services. Bill Gribbons will examine the characteristics of the disruption (compared to the dominant product or service) and the economic conditions allowing it to gain a foothold in non-mainstream markets. We will follow the lifecycle of the disruption as it slowly migrates upstream from the fringe to the primary market where it eventually challenges the dominant technology or service. Bill will then present a clear case of how a strategy of continuous innovation in the mature organization can actually pre-empt the disruptive event.


Bill Gribbons is Program Director for the Bentley University Graduate UX Program. Bill also teaches Innovation in the Bentley MBA. He founded two leading UX consulting organizations; the most recent focused on demonstrating the value of user experience research and design to early-stage start-ups. For over twenty-eight years he has provided strategy, product design, and user experience consulting services to technology groups around the world. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Maryland.

Founded in 1994, PixelMEDIA is a digital agency that creates value for organizations by delivering Internet and mobile solutions. PixelMEDIA's customers include industry leaders such as ECCO Shoes, Sam Adams, Bauer Hockey, Rubik’s Cube, SkillSoft, and Logica. For information, visit
