UX For Good

Hi IxDF Chicago, let’s meet online and discuss UX! In our video call, let’s get to know each other and share UX problems we’re facing and discuss how we can solve them. Save the date, grab your laptop (or phone!), and let’s see each other online!

Here is link to the FigJam for the Meetup

I wanted to discuss some of the most pressing problems we are dealing with and start a monthly meetup to brainstorm ways UX can help. I want to also come up with a name and a graphic for the meetup, so it will be one of the topics to discuss in the first meeting. If you are interested in tackling some of these issues across the globe, come and join me in discussing how!

Please feel free to reach out with any further questions!!

Thank you!!

Coffee & Talks :)

Hey IxDF Chicago!

Sometimes, the best ideas and solutions come from simply hanging out and chatting over a good cup of coffee. Join us for an informal meet-up at our favorite local café where you can relax, unwind, and connect with fellow designers in a cozy setting. Whether you're grappling with design challenges, have questions about the industry, or just want to talk about life and share stories, this is the perfect setting.

No agenda, just good conversation! Bring any topics, questions, or life updates you wish to discuss—or just come to enjoy the company. It's a great opportunity to step away from the formalities of structured meet-ups and truly connect with your peers on a personal level.

Let's get together, share our thoughts, and enjoy some quality time with the group. We can't wait to see you there and catch up on everything that's been going on!

2) Since this is an interactive session, we politely ask that Zoom cameras stay on. If you need an exception to be made to the camera request, please email or send a Slack message to me (Rachel) before the event so I am aware.

See you there, Chicago!!
