We are living in a time when it is no longer enough to simply create a digital product. When at it’s best, design is human and our role as designers is to make it feel natural to use our products while creating emotion. Design plays a fundamental role in the success of your product and taking a design-driven approach from the beginning increases it’s chances of success. In fact first impressions are 94% design-related.
On February 6th, we invite you to a workshop that will show you how to take a design driven approach to take your app from concept to minimum loveable product. This is the beginning of a conversation about the most promising relationship between design, technology and humans.
WHAT YOU WILL GET FROM THIS WORKSHOP :
Actionable advice and techniques to take your idea and transform it into a product prototype from Director of Design at Toptal, Co-Founder & VP Product Sterio.me, Capsule.fm Danielle Reed and Valdis Barrett, International Sr. UX Consultant**.
Hands on approach to design for MVP. Come with your laptop and learn the basics as we go. We will Help you learn how to create a wireframe and basic visual design of your app in class and present the tools usually used by designers.
