Designers + Geeks: Design Is About Relationships
Thursday, July 18, 2013 at 7:00 PM (PDT)
San Francisco, CA
Looks like this event has sold out. No worries, though - we meet monthly and there are several upcoming speakers:
Designers + Geeks features talks from experts on design, technology, startups, and all manner of geekery. If you want to be the first to hear about new Designers + Geeks events, sign up for the newsletter.
It’s easy to get so caught up in theory and process that we forget that design is about relationships. It’s not about Photoshop comps or bytes of code. It’s about people. And content. And, especially today, their devices. It’s about the interplay between content and form, between real-time data and how, when, and why we share and consume it. It’s about enabling connections where they couldn’t have existed before. It’s about focusing on creating experiences that are more meaningful, more delightful, and ultimately, more human.
Josh Brewer is the Principal Designer at Twitter, an advisor/mentor at The Designer Fund, and co-creator of 52 Weeks Of UX. In 2012, Fast Company named him one of "fifty designers shaping the future of design." He believes design is about relationships—at every level—and spends his time working to better understand and reinforce those connections.
