We also cover topics up and down and all-around User Interface and User Experience. Everything from practices, design thinking, war stories, prototyping tools, the latest and greatest plugins and software, Sketch competitors, like Framer X or Invision Studio or Adobe XD, and showcasing the workflows and design systems of local tech. This is a great community to get to know other designers in the area, share ideas, learn new things, and do some hands-on workshops. For those that are interested in sharing knowledge, tips, workflow, projects made in Sketch, our favorite plugins, hopes for future features and bug fixes, and just general advocacy for this cool software. ## Speaker Have you ever wanted to convey motion to a client and end up in a rambling conversation with them because it's hard to sync up your imaginations to imagine the same kind of motion that you're trying to describe with words that you're speaking to the client? Our keynote speaker will be Jonathan Myers, a UX designer at IHS Markit, who will walk us through his method for validating designs through quick motion mockups. It will be a fun time, and there's a really good chance you'll be smiling through it all.
