O que fazemos

We're an engaged group of creatives and doers that want to grow personally and professionally.

We believe that good design happens as a collective. So we shape our workshops to make the most of our busy designers' time, creating unique hands-on events so you can help design the world you live in.

We're a diverse and inclusive meetup that is welcoming of all people and disciplines. No matter where you've been or where you are in your design journey, you are welcome at any workshop.

UX design? Join us. Product design? Get in here. Urban design? Step right up. Landscape design, graphic design, service design - we have a place waiting for you.

Experienced professional? Join us to play with new digital tools, learn new exercises, and meet new people. All while often using your talent and imagination to be of service to a local nonprofit.

No design experience? No problem. We're all beginners at something! The tools and exercises we use are structured to teach you how to use design thinking for a specific problem. These tools can be applied to all professions and aspects of daily life as well.

Intro : Design Sprints + Growth Hacker

Kiln : S.L.C. Gateway

You're invited! To our Design Sprints + Growth Hacker Intro workshop at Kiln SLC. This is an interactive workshop to help teams create new value for the customers they work with. This workshop uses methodology from Sean Ellis' 'Hacking Growth' and Jake Knapp's 'Sprint', to formulate a Growth Hacking program any team can benefit from! A Design Sprint is a process for identifying challenges, testing new (maybe crazy) ideas, for creating services or improving existing ones. It compresses potentially months of work into a few days. Growth Hacking is a process of rapid experimentation on the service and on the marketing channels to find the most efficient way to grow an organization. Together they create a development of short and incremental cycles able to reduce the risk of the investment by quickly checking the results. Learning Objectives -Run the Growth Sprint -Practice and critique the 5-Principals of design sprints -Map the 3 primary growth levers(Acquisition, Activation, Retention) of an organization -Describe how to measure results and share feedback and ideas around growth and development within organizations Is this workshop for you? Typical attendees include: Business Owners, Founders, Product Managers, Researchers, Marketers, Heads of Innovation, CTOs/VPs of Engineering, Developers, UX/UI Designers, Data Scientist, and Creative/Art Directors. This workshop is not for those wanting to sit back and hear the theory.
