AIGA MN’s Digital Committee’s mission is to engage the tech community – Designers, UXers, Developers, and beyond – in impactful conversations around the design space and create a collaborative learning community. This panel focuses on the process of integrating UX and Engineering systems to improve communication across teams within an organization. The event is tailored towards individuals working with creative and technical teams interested in learning ways to improve communication. However, anyone is welcome to join.

Our panel includes a mix of developers and UXers with extensive industry knowledge. View their bios below:
