We're so used to incorporating external data to inform our design. "Which feature wins out in A/B testing? Are we getting smiley faces or frowny faces on the Likert Scale feedback widget?" Our guest speaker this month invites us to turn inward. We can use Emotional Intelligence as a catalyst for incredible design.

Devin O'Bryan is Design Lead for IBM Watson Studio's Modeler offering. For over 5 years, he has been co-creating within IBM IoT, IBM Corporate HR, IBM Design’s Global Education & Activation Team (with programs like Design Bootcamp and Designweek), as well as building and maintaining the intensive, award-winning Maelstrom design internship program from scratch. More recently, he served as Creative Director for IBM’s internal incubator known as Project Whitespace.

Devin will speak about making Emotional Intelligence an integral part of the design process with tangible examples in the team setting.

As always, this free event will have free food and great discussion. Join us and bring a friend! Remember, we're in a NEW LOCATION with plenty of free parking!

P.S. - What creative sparks have you recorded since we launched the Data+Creativity Cognitive City last month? We'll talk about them.
