We live in a world with a lot of beautiful design and a lot of crappy design.

Whether it’s navigating a website, driving through city streets, or walking through a newly built home, design plays a fundamental role in almost everything that we see and do.
User Experience (UX) can be defined as every aspect of the user’s interaction with a product, service, or company when interacting with a specific design. Bad User Experience sucks.

This event will pinpoint how to Utilize User Experience To Solve Pain Points in Our Lives. Our topics of conversation will include a wide variety of questions including Web/Mobile Design, Future Trends, Urban Design, Connectivity of Design, and more…

We will hold a panel discussion with 4 panel experts on June 6th at 5:30-8:30.
