Lightning Talks!

Do you have a tactical tool or technique you use and can’t live without on a daily basis? Do you think it’s something every designer should know about, embrace, and use every day?

If so we’d love to hear from you for our May 2nd event at Capital One’s 1717 Innovation Center. For this event, we’re looking for 4 designers to come in and each give a 12-15 minute talk about something they’re passionate about.

For your submission, we’ll need the following info…
– A working title (doesn’t have to be final) for your talk.
– A brief overview (let’s say a paragraph) laying out what you would cover and why you think it matters.
– An example of how the audience could immediately apply what they’ve learned in their day-to-day job/life or immediately into their craft/practice.

If you’re interested email your submission to info@richmondux.com by April 15th.

RICHMOND UX DESIGN SPRINT WORKSHOP

DsgnSprint-Nov14-EVBRIGHT-Lg3DESCRIPTION

Want to facilitate breakthrough ideas, solve business challenges and validate products with customers? A Design Sprint might just be the answer.

The Design Sprint, originally developed at Google, is a short, time-boxed process for answering critical business questions through design, prototyping, and testing ideas with customers. It is a short, intense effort (a sprint!) conducted by a small, functional team where the results set the direction for the product, service, or feature.

In this workshop we will learn the tools & techniques of the same structured framework that has been used to design, prototype and validate solutions for startups, agencies, and even non-profits. We will be hands-on for 120 minutes using the same activities you would complete during a sprint.

WHO’S THIS WORKSHOP FOR?

Anyone with tough problems to solve – designers, developers, product managers, marketers, content strategists, CEOs/founders, even human resources. The Design Sprint process has been used to solve a wide array of problems from the UX of digital products to wayfinding in a museum to the hiring process at Google.

This will be a fast-paced, intense workshop. While not a requirement, it will be most successful if all participants have at least some familiarity with the Design Sprint process. Google Ventures offers an excellent primer on Design Sprints to help you get familiar.

AGENDA

3:30 – 4:00: Arrive, get settled and warm up (it is a sprint after all!)

4:00 – 6:00: Sprint!

6:00 – 6:30: Cool down and say goodbye
