Viasat Customer Experience Research & Design is a multi-disciplinary team of designers and researchers who work across Viasat’s diverse business segments (Consumer, Enterprise, Government) with the mission of making Viasat the most customer centric global ISP. The team will discuss their process, hurdles and victories as they moved their design system from Sketch to Figma.

This virtual event is co-hosted by Friends of Figma, San Diego and SDXD

Friends of Figma, San Diego is a group of fans, champions and advocates of the design software Figma in the greater San Diego region. We have virtual sessions, panels, workshops and games as well as in-person events (in the not-too-distant future). If you have a passion for design, join our group! We welcome people new to Figma and hoping to learn as well as seasoned veterans crafting unique and powerful plugins.

SDXD (San Diego Experience Design Professionals Network) is here to enrich the San Diego experience design community. Most members are UX research and design practitioners but we have a broad perspective. We want to bring together anyone who works in, or is simply interested by, the various experience design disciplines and techniques (UX, IxD, usability, prototyping, HCI, service design, industrial design, etc.).
