This is an IDF Local Group meet-up

  • Attendance is free

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.

Meet-up description

NOTE: the location is not changing but we will start just couple of minutes after 6pm which gives us all time to grab a drink (and a bite) for the session as venue closes at 7:15pm.

Not sure what UX is? Think you need to draw beautifully? Here's a practical session we can map out the mental models that people have, in order to design something.

Remember: design isn't just how it looks– it's how it works.

For the intro TED talk, see

11 IDF members (and some non-members) are attending:

Hi all,

Excited for this Wednesday event. Are you all still coming?

Just wanted to confirm that the venue is going to be as advertised Porter+Cole.

They have really good coffee and tea, or can grab a beer/wine as we are meeting up after work. They also do some gorgeous cakes.

See you all at the Mental Model Models session this Wednesday. 😉


Sorry but unlikely that I'll be able to make it now due to the school holidays. Hope that there is another meet up soon on a Saturday as i found it really useful

Hi Matthew, we missed you yesterday.

We will look into another Saturday session for future. Our next one is on 22nd May at the moment.
