What we're about

This meet up is for visual, UI/UX, and interaction design enthusiasts! We are focused on creating a community of designers in Berlin where we can talk shop, share ideas and designs, and get to know one another. This event will run in tandem with our London Design Lab.

Each meetup features a chance to network and hear from a speaker in the local design community.

We are always looking for speakers, so if you have an interesting project, exploration, or topic to discuss please get in touch! We are open to full-length talks (about 30 minutes) as well as shorter talks and demos (about 10 minutes) Just send an email to designlab@novoda.com

I remember the first time I had to use a white board for work and also my first few white boarding challenge - I was terrible at it. In this talk I would like to share some personal experiences and what I learned from my white boarding challenges and also problem solving sessions with product and business. We will go over some ways to be more confident, strengthen our problem-solving and communication skills. Ultimately to have a starting frame work to be able to facilitate our thinking and share with our audience. Speaker: Leandro Velasco Hi! I am Leandro from Toronto and now a Berlin-based designer. I studied graphic design and then eventually found my place in digital. I stared off as a Visual Designer and then the last few years I've been focusing on product strategy, design thinking, user experience and human centred design. My design experience is pretty diverse from design agency to client work. Recently I joined the design team at SoundCloud. https://twitter.com/itsleandrov https://www.linkedin.com/in/itsleandrov ⚡️Talk: Talk: How to design the future of work for unstoppable success, productivity and joy (in simple steps that everybody can take) A shocking 85% of employees are not engaged in their work.
