  • Design Research for New Platforms and the why of Research

    Hello Designers,

    We all love the idea of designing for something on the horizon, innovating and shaping the future of products at the cutting edge of technology. However, when we are faced with such tasks, how do we begin to do research when the platforms we are trying to design for does not exist and there are no users yet?

    We are excited to host these experienced individuals in Denver to walk us through their process and methodology as they tackled the vastness of researching for an unproven and new platform. They all come from different backgrounds and will bring amazing perspectives to our community.

    1st HH of 2019

    Hello Designers & Friends,
    We are kicking off 2019 at this creative brewery in the Art District of Santa Fe. What better way is there to mingle with your fellow designers than trying out new craft creations like: Turkish Coffee Stout, Dos Luces Brewery Chicha Morada, and Chai English Bitter ( to name a few). For those of us that are still on the New Year resolution of non alcohol, they have nitro coffee and kombucha. You can also order food to be delivered at the location.

    The venue said they will have tables for us inside in the back. I think this will be a really good settings for us to kick off the year. The owner is an avid traveler and love the "experience" that his "product" offers. Check out his stories here and order a few flights of these exotic beers to try with your fellow designers.
    https://www.sojournerbeers.com/intrepid-sojourner/
    They are giving our members $1.50 off of a full pour. Be kind to your bartenders.

    Adding a twist to this HH
    Get your name tag, on it write 3 epithets that describe you or what you would like to be known by. Look at others' name tag, ask them why they would like to be known by those epithets and what are they doing to make that happen.
    I'm looking forward to some interesting conversation over the most creative craft beers in Denver.
    See you all there.

    Zoe, Seth and the rest of the gang.
