What This MeetUp Is About! Any creative projects are inherently a design-intensive projects. We make things in search for a better design. We’d love you to think of the new meetup group as a university media lab without academic stress, and with a lot of fun, where you show off projects and have fun with peers.
There is no limit on the range of projects we do: interactive arts, web development, mobile apps, games, robotics, fashion design, graphic design, carpentry...etc. Creating things, getting feedbacks, making better design are what it’s all about.
What the meetup mission and goals are? We believe better design leads to better life. Our goal is to help each other achieve better design.
What you will gain from this meetup? This is a great place to work out your ideas before you launch your project, idea or business. You can also choose to practice your pitch here as well. You will walk away with fantastic feedback and learn from peers from various industries.
How to participate or contribute? 1. Bring one project that you are currently working on. Ideas in your head are worthless unless you can show it in some way. We welcome any programming projects, visual designs, maker products, personal inventions, or artistic projects. 2. Must have either visuals (such as illustrations, power points, idea boards, videos, live codes) or physical objects (work in progress projects, or project materials) 3. Actual product demos are also welcome, but we encourage work-in-progress products rather than finished products that are already on the market.
What we expect from members? 1. Open your minds to sharing and learning 2. Be fearless 3. Learn to take productive criticisms (Criticisms are not personal attacks on your creativity, but rather it is to expand your abilities and elevate your creativity.) 4. Most of all, bring a passion to solve problems through design.
