Design process in action

Needs a location

Designers of all stripes share a common fundamental philosophy which can be difficult to tease out. Leigh Harris (Senior Game Designer) and Nick Strine (Senior UX/UI Designer) will deliver an evening which will help demonstrate this common philosophy be solving a very practical design problem. In a casual setting, the pair will identify a goal, begin to understand the path to get there, isolate design problems and then work through some of them from their respective fields. As they do, they’ll explain what their respective roles in solving the problem are, how they each approach a design problem, what information they each need and why that information is important to achieving their ends. Most importantly, they’ll demonstrate how to utilise the particulars of each specialised design field to achieve a common goal, noting the commonalities and differences along the way. • Agenda 5:45pm – Guests arrive and network 6:15pm – Hello and introduction to speakers 6:20pm – Topic 1 7:00pm – Topic 2 7:20pm – Networking This is a free event sponsored by Wargaming Sydney for the community.
