Join us for an interactive talk about defining the UX design profession and how to become a UX designer based on Emil Lamprecht’s internationally acclaimed article 7 Signs This Person Isn’t Actually A UX Designer published by UX Mastery on 08.07.14.
To continue the debate we’ve invited the following UX professionals to lead a discussion about what it takes to become a UX Designer and whether you really have to fake it to make it:
Danielle Reid, Co-founder of Capsule.fm & mentor at Startupbootcamp
Christian Drehkopf, Head of Mobile at Zalando SE, Founder of UX4S - User Experience for Startups & mentor at Startupbootcamp & Startup Institute
Emil Lamprecht, CMO & Creative Director of CareerFoundry
We want to hear your views so we’ve made this discussion open to the audience.
UX Designer is still a relatively new profession, and one that is still being defined. Emil suggests it is an often misinterpreted role and that ‘User Experience Designer’ is becoming one of the most abused titles in the tech scene. Whether you agree or disagree, come down to Betahaus for a few free beers and let us know what you think!
We’ll also invite 5 UX Designers to stand up and introduce themselves to the crowd after the talk.
Drinks will be sponsored by CareerFoundry!
