We should all be designers

About the event

Designers are useful people. Our superpowers are solving problems and communicating ideas — and we have techniques that we know work in pretty much any situation.

So why do we specialise in features, interfaces and interactions?

Designers add immense value to businesses, not because they make things pretty, but because they have tools that help solve complicated problems. And companies are made of problems — which means there’s more ways to be a designer than you think.

Join UX Gatherings as Amelia Schmidt explores what design thinking can do for business and engineering. Amelia will show us why "UX Designer" is not just a job title, and explain why following design thinking and user-centred methodologies is best practice — no matter what kind of work you do.
