What we'll do

How to form a solid design background through education? To what extent is design education useful in our daily lives? What should we learn to evolve ourselves to better designers? In a world that surrounds us with technology, what’s the relevance of technical knowledge for a designer? What’s the breadth and depth of the skills that a designer should acquire (e.g., project management, finance, strategy, leadership)?

On April 23rd, UXify is back with three exciting guests to shed light on these questions. As COVID-19 prevents us from having social contacts as we are used to, let’s not make it stop us! So, get comfy at home, prepare your dinner, grab a drink and join us for our first fully online event. We will be sharing the streaming link with you once it's created.

This event is part of our UX meets Education series.

Our new format: “UX meets..."
As we all know, there is much more to UX than beautiful interfaces and delightful interactions. We decided to expand and deepen the meaning of UX by exploring the question: what happens when UX meets...? We will do that in theme blocks of 3 monthly events. From April to July, we start with: UX meets Education! This event series will explore how UX and education help each other to make a difference in people’s lives.
