One of the myths around UX design is that the process requires a lot of resources, takes a long time and costs a lot. Does that always have to be the case? Maybe sometimes all you need is a group of dedicated and creative minds in one room with clearly defined goals. Greg Dilley, a UX Designer and Strategist, will guide you through a novel process that encourages individuals to be highly creative and reach consensus as a team.

During this hands-on design studio event, you will go through a series of sketching exercise to redesign an existing site and learn how to incorporate goals and requirements effectively. At the end of the evening, you will walk away with practical skills that you can use in your next design project.

This design studio event is great for:

  • Experienced UX professionals who would like to learn alternative methods of leading a design workshop
  • Junior UXers who would like to gain hands-on experience practicing their knowledge on UX best practices
