Introduction to the LA Design Community

  • March 21, 2013 · 7:00 PM

Presented by General Assembly + HUGE (Todd Lefelt, Managing Director of UX)
Complimentary popcorn and drinks will be served.

This free class is an orientation to help newcomers and recent design school graduates get acquainted with the exciting world of design in Los Angeles. We will canvas key events/meetups to attend, people, companies, blogs, hot issues, and talk about the best way to go about securing an entry level UX position. Learn the role of key players such as the Los Angeles UX Meetups, CreativeMornings, as well as arts and innovation complexes such as ATX. After class you are encouraged to network with a number of prominent designers at HUGE.
