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 IDF London, I'm a graphic designer transitioning into UX. I've been extremely lucky to start working with a mentor who's helping me navigate my way through all the available information. I'd love to share the knowledge I've already learnt with you, and hear your stories!
I didn't get many posts at all...only 3...and that included you and me...interesting...
So lets just set a date?? What about Tuesday 11th June at The Royal Festival Hall 6.30-9pm.
Hi Janine, the problem is still ongoing and I haven't had any more news
from Rikke. I'll mention it to Natalia too who has posted below. Tuesday
11 June is great though – shall we meet anyway?
Hello all. IDF LONDON needs two or three co-leaders to organise and coordinate meet ups. Please let me know if you are interested in the position. Thank you.
Natalia Brown (IDF UK manager)
Hi Natalia, I'm interested too; please feel free to get in touch. There
is definitely a problem on this post – alerts about messages and posts
are not being sent or received. I've been in contact with Rikke but
nothing has yet changed – it's really frustrating as we've been trying to organise a meet-up but it's impossible.
I am interested. Are you kindly able to provide the requirements for that?
- Hello Maxwell here are responsibilities of an IDF Local Leader
- As a Local Leader, you will be involved in facilitating meet-ups in your city — where designers can network and learn from one another.
I'd love to join this meetup, however Tuesdays are a bit difficult for me at the moment, Saturdays and Sundays would be better. Thursday evenings as well. Keep me posted in case the date changes! Where are we thinking in terms of location?
I'm away on the 11th. Happy to meet on Saturday Mornings or during the week after work.
I’m certainly intrigued by this. I organise similar events within London with guest speakers and so would be interested to learn more about it.
Hi Natalia and Kathryn,
I like to be part of the meetup on 11June will work for me, please let me know the venue and timings. Looking forward for this meetup.
I would like to organise this event with Kathyrn (where are you?) On June 11th 2019 at the Royal Festival Hall, but not sure of other further events.... Do I need to go through the process of creating a Linkedin thread for this? Can I official set up this date now?
the meet up is happening on 11/06 @18.00 at Royal Festival Hall foyer - Southbank Centre. I advertised it on IDF London LinkedIn group IDF UK Facebook and Twitter. I am not able to attend because I am not based in London. Hope all goes well.
Please join IDF UK Facebook group and follow on Twitter.
Natalia (IDF UK country manager)
Unfortunately I can't make this one. I was hoping this would line up with a meeting in London, but sadly it hasn't worked out.
Hi, look forward to meeting some of you on the 11th... any ideas on how we will find each other?
Great you are coming, I phoned up to see if we could have a corner or a floor in the Royal Festival Hall, and it seems like there is a big concert on that evening, so I was proposing to redirect people to the Queen Elizabeth Hall, which is literally 20 secs away. Its in a different building , but same place more or less, actually I will ask Natalia to change the meet up Venue.
See you there Dave,
Can you please change the title of the Meet up from The Royal Festival Hall to the Queen Elizabeth Hall. Same time, same Place.
Hello Janine. I have amended the date on Facebook. I may changed it by mistake while updating the location. I hope all will go well. Please message me through IDF UK Facebook page if you have any further questions. It should be faster
Hi, unfortunately I had to cancel the attendance, it was supposed to be my first IDF meetup. Is there any place (discussion/blog/recording) of the meetup I can follow later on?
Sorry you can't make it tomorrow, this is my first IDF Meetup too! Hopefully there will be more like this to come. The Meetup tomorrow is just an informal coffee and chat, so I might just give a quick summary of what happened, I'll send a link somehow. We will try to ask people what they want for the next one...
Hi, there seems to be some problem on this platform regarding posts – I haven't been receiving any messages so I'm guessing it's the same for everybody. I think I've now independently contacted everyone I can about the meet-up tomorrow evening – 6-9pm at the Queen Elizabeth Hall. Let's all wear something red so we can identify each other! As you said, Janine, it can just be an informal chat, with a view to more structured meetings in the future.
Looking forward to meeting you tomorrow
All the best
Hi there, just to let you know I am still definitely coming tonight but I suspect I may be little late getting there, hopefully no later than 6.30.
Also is it worth posting this meetup on the IDF London slack channel, haven't seen it mentioned on there?
I am.new to London can some one send the post code. I can find the location. Thanks
The venue is the South Bank Centre, in the Queen Elizabeth Hall. https://southbankcentre.co.uk/venues/queen-elizabeth-hall
had a fantastic meet-up last night at the Queen Elizabeth Hall. We all
have different career backgrounds and reasons for wanting to move into
UX/UI, or for moving into new areas within it, and it really feels like
we all can contribute to and learn from each other. Anyone who is
interested in joining would be very welcome... please get in touch!
All the best
