When a group of ambitious designers meet, you know something hot is brewing. Take a closer look and you’ll find them murmuring away about how to improve user experience on their next big undertaking.
Design thinking is related closely with, but not limited to, designers. It takes a strategic approach to design better products and can be used by people from any field – art, literature, science, music, engineering or business.
The Interaction Design Foundation (IDF) aims to make this approach more commonly known to everyone. IDF has a presence in about 85 countries where local groups get together to learn and develop new skills.
We have one such group in Bangalore, India and we had the first IDF meet up on 18th February, 2017 at the Position2 office. Our team participated and collaborated with designers from across the city. We were pleasantly surprised to have some participants from other cities as well, who came just to be a part of this discussion group. This meet up was attended by 24 people in all.
We have hosted two more such sessions on 11th March, 2017 and 29th April, 2017 respectively.
Over three sessions, the IDF meet ups covered a wide range of topics:
Having declared Swiggy the winner, the participants proceeded to set the agenda for the next meet up – User Research. Don’t miss it!
