🎙 José Rodrigues - Building a design culture outside design departments ##
Designer @ dashdash
When thinking about design most of us think about execution, technical skills, photoshop. And that’s ok, but not ok, but ok. Design should be a key decision driver within organisations. A strong design culture gives birth to products that outpace competitors and attract loyal customers. Design is more and sometimes less, clichés are fun.
Part(y) time designer helping companies build better digital experiences.

# Product & Design - Why they should be an inseparable duo
We'll expand on José's talk a talk about the importance of Product and Design working closely together.
- José Rodrigues - Designer @ dashdash
- Ruca Sousa Marques - CoFounder & CEO @ Switch
Ruca had his first incursion into the payments industry back in 2012. Back then, he co-founded cashtag, a mobile P2P payments app invested by Seedcamp, the biggest European startup accelerator. Confronted with such a fragmented industry - built on top of arcane legacy systems - he later set himself up to build a new payments infrastructure from the ground up, connecting the entire value chain through a modern and flexible payments platform (Switch) where he now serves as CEO
- Helena Barros - Junior Product Designer @ Farfetch
After studying multiple design areas since early years, I've discovered that with the mix of technology and daily problem-solving we get the result of UX UI design. With this new passion I've been pursuing a way to become a unicorn in the area while working at Farfetch as a Product Designer.
