Description

Less Meetings, More Designing: How to streamline your creative process during Product Development

The creative process can be hard when miscommunication and time consuming procedures gets in the way. Kelvin Tow, Product Designer at Pinterest and Jordan Kanarek, UX + Product consultant will discuss best practices around brainstorming and feedback process. Learn how to avoid wasting time or being sidetracked during the creative journey and the importance of storytelling.

Speakers:

Kelvin Tow, Product Designer at Pinterest, former UX Designer at Linkedin

Born and raised in the bay area, Kelvin grew up with music as his first passion. During high school, he formed a band with his brother and a few friends that sparked his interest in design. While working on flyers, websites, banners, and marketing materials for his band, Kelvin realized his newfound interest above even the music he was creating; and decided to pursue graphic design straight out of high school. After a few twists and turns in and out of college, you can find him building products at Pinterest today. A few of his passions include photography, motorsports, music events, and skating around SOMA.
