Details

We know one week out of one month a year of major UX festivities won't be enough for smart cookies like you. When all is said and done, and you're still mulling over Jon Kolko's keynote two months later, you can come along to UX book club on 11 October to talk about his latest book, Creative Clarity. :)

This brief but powerful guide helps you articulate what creativity means, and then navigate bringing that creative thinking into your business, even if (especially if!) you feel it is too chaotic or unprepared for such a thing. In fact, in "a creative environment, chaos is the backdrop for hidden wonderment and success."

You can read more about the book and purchase it here: https://www.amazon.com/Creative-Clarity-Jon-Kolko/dp/0978853814

DO I NEED TO READ THE BOOK?
Yes, our discussions will be about the book and the topics and ideas that it includes. So we ask that you come to book club having read some or all of the book and be ready to discuss its topics and ideas.

GIVE THE SUMMARY
Would you like to give a brief summary of the book at the start of book club? Contact us before Wednesday, 15 August if you’re interested!
