THE FCIP LOGO ORIGIN STORY

Our logo (https://www.meetup.com/goFCIP/photos/289869/#473011059) was designed with the diversity and creativity of our members in mind. The infinity loop represents, among many things, our appreciation for infinite creation, ideas and learning. The component parts of the logo also represent collaboration and kinetic potential. These elements all live in an abstract cubed space, which is a placeholder for their virtual environment. The <> symbols are a nod to the underlying building blocks of that environment, which is the internet. Many thanks to John Patzman of 1KRobots (http://www.1krobots.com/) for designing our logo and to the FCIP members who voted for this design to represent our amazing group.

FCIP December Meetup: The Importance of Visual Design

Contrary to the old adage, people do judge a book by its cover. What we see influences not only how we feel about something but also how much we trust it. The visual appearance of your work is judged every time it's shared, and how it looks impacts the recipient's perception of the information and of you (whether they intended it to or not). Join us on Tuesday, December 3, as Luciano Vizza discusses the UX and business value of good visual design, unpacks some tried and true principles, and then applies those principles to the redesign of a site page. If you'd like to get a sneak peek at some of the design principles he'll discuss, check out Luciano's Medium post: https://medium.com/otlventures/yes-i-think-your-document-is-ugly-f37d2da0e699 Complimentary drinks and appetizers will be served at 5:45pm. The presentation will start at 6:00pm with Q&A to follow. RSVP today! MORE ABOUT OUR SPEAKER: Luciano Vizza is a co-founder & product designer at OTL Ventures. He's a self-taught product designer who happened upon product design while starting a company in college. Ever since then, he's been fascinated with how successful businesses at their core have a well-crafted product, delivering value to their customers. He loves talking about good UX, eating good food, and drinking a finely crafted cup of coffee.
