This is an IDF Local Group meet-up
- You do not have to be a member of the IDF to attend
What are Local Groups?
IDF Local Groups will expand your local career network - whether you are interested in learning new skills, looking for new job opportunities, new clients for your company, or a great new dedicated employee.
An IDF Local Group is a group of people who are just as passionate about design as you are. Each Local Group holds physical meetings and the agenda is to get inspired, discuss, have fun, learn and improve your career. Meetings take place in a relaxed and fun atmosphere at a local cafe, an office building, or an auditorium depending on the agenda for the meeting. For each Local Group there is also an online Local Group so you can stay in touch and help update each other on local events.
Hi UX designers in Seattle and surrounding areas! As the local leader of IDF Seattle, I am planning monthly guest-speaker meetups at which we learn from industry leading experts.
In March I am pleased to announce that Michael Longe has agreed to speak on one of two topics:
1. "Think Like an Inventor." A little cross-training exercise that takes best practices for drawing up patent applications and applies it to brainstorming, problem-solving, and design.
2. Five Whys for UI. Drawing from Toyota's renowned problem-solving processes to think anew about our understanding of user workflows, wants, and needs.
"Michael is an accomplished design leader and team manager with hands-on experience in UX design, research, and rapid prototyping for mobile, embedded, and desktop/Web platforms, as well as an MBA focused on Technology Entrepreneurship. In addition to daily duties in Design Ops, his knowledge and interests span Cloud-connected devices, assistive and augmentative technologies, and robotics. Michael is currently pausing to consider where his next UX Director role should be."
Regarding the two topics, indicate which you'd prefer in the discussion notes! Also, if you sign up to attend, please attend!
I look forward to meeting you in the near future and if you'd like to potentially speak at a meetup, send me a message! Happy 2020!
