Introduction to the LA Design Community 

Saturday, April 6, 2013 from 5:30pm-7pm

Todd Lefelt and Jennifer La Placa, Huge

Complimentary drinks and appetizers will be served.

This free class is an orientation to help newcomers and recent design school graduates get acquainted with the exciting world of design in Los Angeles. We will canvas key events/meetups to attend, people, companies, hot issues, and will discuss how to go about securing an entry level UX position. Attendees will also learn more about Huge and its approach to UX design. After the class you are encouraged to network with other attendees and a number of prominent designers.
