This is a group for current and prospective members of Interaction Design Foundation in San Francisco, CA and the greater Bay Area. We are designers (UX, UI, Product and Service) and UX researchers with various skill levels united by passion for what we do and desire to become better at it.
Join our workshops, panel discussions and webinars, and participate in democratizing learning by providing low-cost, high-quality education to communities around the world.
Interaction Design Foundation is an independent nonprofit initiative with an objective that sounds like a paradox—to raise the level of global design education to an Ivy League standard, while at the same time reducing costs to as low as we can possibly take them. So, we democratize learning by providing top-notch curricular materials, and we aim to strike the perfect balance between academic rigor and practical relevance.
Established in 2002 in Denmark, we were inspired by the Scandinavian educational system to create low-cost, high-quality education so as to change the way people learn the science, art and intricacies of design. Since 2002, we have built a sustainable collaboration and education platform, and have grown our global community to reach 457 local groups in 92 countries.
We continue to collaborate with top universities and companies, such as Stanford, Cambridge and SAP Labs, as well as such noted authors as Clayton Christensen and Don Norman, to share our knowledge with over a million designers every month.
