Hello Designers & Friends,
Let's close out 2018 with a fireside chat featuring Denver's design community in Rino's newest mix use space. We will host a panel of practicing professionals to reflect about the state of design in the Denver/ Boulder area. Then we will open up the discussion to the group to talk about hopes & dreams for next year as well as wishlist for Denver UX activities.
We will start inside, as the venue said they will set up tables for us. Depending on the weather we could potentially move outside to roast S'mores. (I heard they have firepits)
So bring a friend and S'mores or make friend with people that brought S'mores.
Here are our confirmed panlists to lead the fireside chat. Our panelists come from a mix background which include large corporation, mid-size companies, and agencies.
1. What were some of the biggest hurdles you have tackled in 2018 with you org? Tell us about some of the wins and pain points?
2. In the last years, what do you see as trending in the Design Community of Denver/ Boulder? Compare and contrast to the rest of the U.S./ World?
3. What are some of your hopes and dreams going into 2019 with your org? With Denver UX community?
See you all there.
Zoe, Seth and the rest of the gang.
