UX Group Launch Event: Interactive Panel Discussion

UX and R Taco

Where’s the intersection of Visual Design and UX? What strategies are UX designers finding success with right now? What does a career in UX Design even look like? And how good is R Taco? Dive into these questions and many more during an interactive panel discussion hosted by software startup LeadPages. After we all get to know each other a bit, the discussion kicks off at 6:30 with a few conversation starters for the panelists. After that, the questions we cover are completely up to you. A panel of local pros will tackle the subject of UX from a range of design and digital backgrounds. Come ready with questions! Whether you’re just learning or a practicing designer looking for meaningful UX conversation with fellow colleagues, this is one night you won’t want to miss. Plus, there’ll be free tacos courtesy of our host, LeadPages! PS: We’re all makers! With that in mind, we’re going to create hands-on opportunities as well as information at future events. To begin, we’re looking for volunteers to contribute to the AIGA Minnesota website redesign currently underway. Pete Klein and Derek Huber, who are currently leading the project, will be around to answer questions at the event. Feel free to ask them about it if you’re interested.
