Even if you don’t have the word “designer” in your title, you’re already making design decisions. This class is for entrepreneurs presenting mockups, engineers building prototypes and those within a startup responsible for evaluating products. This four-session course will demystify the design process by covering basic principles of good design, critiquing real-world examples, and designing something from scratch.
Session I (5/31)
This session will cover the value and role of design in a startup and establish some basic principles of good design.
Session II (6/7)
In this session, instructors will apply the principles by evaluating various designs, both good and bad, including examples from volunteers in the class (that's you!)
Session III (6/14)
In this session, the students and instructors will design something from scratch and introduce an iterative approach toward the design process.
Session IV (6/21)
Here, instructors will dive into extended topics such as: how to get and give design feedback and how to work with designers.
All of Disrupto's profit from the course will be donated to Camp Interactive, a non-profit empowering NYC inner-city youth through the inspiration of the outdoors and the creative power of technology.
