What exactly is a “High Octane Digital Rendezvous”? It’s a fast paced, high octane chance for like minded designers, developers and UX professionals to micro-connect, share, learn, eat, and drink for free!
Who should attend?
Designers want to be more strategic. Stakeholders want strategy to be carried through in design. And yet somewhere in the product creation process, it's all too easy for teams to become reactive, losing the vision set forth in the kick-off.
In this HODR we'll talk about some of the reasons collaborative creation of principles can be difficult, and activities that can help you climb above the chaos for a clearer vision - together.
