What we're about

Welcome to The Design Collective - Silicon Valley! (Formerly South Bay Product and UX)

This group is about UX and Product Design.

We are largely a social group. Most often you'll catch us meeting up over coffee, co-working, or mingling with others in UX at a group mixer.

We also do career-focused and interactive meetups, portfolio reviews, office tours and more. Check out an awesome article a member wrote about us (https://medium.com/@jenn.chou408/south-bay-product-and-uxd-meetup-b10385223805).

Please remember — many of our events have a smaller attendee limit, so update your RSVP if you are no longer able to make it to an event so that someone else can have your spot. Please don't be a no-show. Nobody likes a no-show.

Looking forward to meeting you!
