Talks:

First Talk: Design systems for Dummy, Ahmed Genaidy

Abstract:
What are Design systems?
When are Design systems useful?
How do I get started?
Tools and some Hacks!

Bio: I am Ahmed Genaidy, UX/UI designer, and sketch plugins developer. experienced in building design systems, I started my design system 5 years ago when there were no tools to handle, I build the design system for "ready to drop" app for smart, and I am the creator of sketch plugins "Move-to-library" and "overrideit".

Second Talk: How we redesigned our UX team meeting, Vera Fuest & Laura Quarz

Abstract: Our weekly team meeting used to be very spontaneous and a little unstructured. Always the same people talked, others did not say a word. Encourage 15 people who work in two cities to have relevant discussions was not easy. Another goal was to get the meeting to run by itself without the same in charge every time.

We would like to share how we redesigned our team meeting to become more insightful, dynamic and productive.

Bio: Laura and Vera both work as UX Designers at Sevenval for about 2 years.

Laura just moved from Cologne to Berlin. Her interdisciplinary studies led her to dive into photography, product and communication design. This wide-ranged background brought her to designing websites where she enjoys conceptually complex tasks.

Vera is strongly interested in interactions between both, human-human and human-machine. She was involved in a founding project, established the UX department in a startup and now works in the dynamic agency environment.
