Critiques are important to help us grow and improve.  Yet so many designers are apprehensive about sharing their voice.  How do we present feedback in a way that shows we care and understand what the goals are? How do we communicate design ideas effectively in a non-invasive way?

Join us for a Q&A with Braden Kowitz, Design Partner at Google Ventures as he teaches us: 

  • How to give and receive valuable product feedback
  • How to present designs 
  • How to ask for feedback
  • How to handle high pressure design presentations with stakeholders
