Design - Principles & Process

event dates Nov 7, 2017, 18:30 — 20:30 (UTC +02:00)
Morning Star Design (MSD), 109 3rd Street, Linden, Randburg, Johannesburg

Hi IDF Johannesburg, let's meet up and network over coffee! Share UX design insights and resources, discuss UX problems you are facing now, or just chat about anything else. It's going to be an informal, cozy meet-up with fellow designers!

There are many processes out there, so many ways of thinking, hopefully, this group will help us break through the bottlenecks of product design (and design in general) November our group is so lucky to have more awesome speakers... "2 Freethinking ladies & 1 Exploring Entrepreneur" to share their thinking & processes with us.
