• Junior UX Crunch: Design Language

    WeWork

    TICKET ONLY EVENT: http://bit.ly/2FJ65wS A design language or design vocabulary is an overarching scheme or style that guides the design of a complement of products or architectural settings. A unified design system is essential to building better and faster; better because a cohesive experience is more easily understood by our users, and faster because it gives us a common language to work with. Join us as we sit down for another fantastic evening of theoretical insight, case studies, discussions and more!

Her portfolio is a mixture of academic and industry projects, that ranges from tech-based health intervention, human errors in safety critical systems, and enterprise service design. Why do we call design language a language? How important is language to the design and to the design process? In this session, let’s take a different spin on language, explore its impact beyond the design, and discuss some good practices that help you to get it right for enterprise services that consist of multiple digital products, and used by tens of thousands of people in different roles.
