Hey OC eXperience Designers,

You are a start-up that just developed a cutting-edge mobile app, now what? You’ve designed an awesome branding system, how do you protect it? Learn how you can ensure the intellectual property you create is protected from infringement. Get a better understanding of what can be protected and what cannot and things you, as a designer, should know.

This month we have an awesome speaker, Steven J. Nataupsky, on Protecting UX/Design Innovations: Best Practices for Patents, Trademarks and Copyrights for your Digital Innovations.

We will also have our usual awesome Group Design Challenge afterward!

This event isn't just for designers and we encourage product managers, developers, and anyone interested in UX to attend.

There will be free food and beverages, provided by Neudesic.

Free parking at 100 Spectrum Center Dr. or across the street at the Irvine Spectrum.

Hope to see you there!
