The 90 Minute UX Challenge
Andy Tindale (https://twitter.com/tyn_typ)

A two year journey moving from print to digital design has resulted in the need to learn a host of new tools and a new set of design rules. This talk will look at the process of evolving across design disciplines and how setting timed creative challenges can help to learn new software and best practices when it comes to producing layouts and graphics for screens.
