Event Details

What is design debt, and what does it mean for the design of digital products & services?

No matter what digital design discipline you ascribe to, be it strategic or tactical, when it comes to websites, mobile applications, web-based tools, and more — you'll want to come and listen to what our panel has to say around the topic.

We'll be talking about design debt, bringing to light our unique individual experiences around it, and discussing practical ways to helping avoid it.



Damon Gaumont, Event Host & Creative Director at Emerge 
Damon guides brands accountably through the creation of digital experiences by tapping his background and expertise in brand building, creative strategy, and experience design. His belief that all digital experiences work best with a clearly defined vision up-front is the first step in an accountable process that culminates with beautifully usable and inherently humanized branded digital experiences.


Deb Mrazek, Founding Partner of Curiate 
With over 30 years of experience creating and driving design strategy, Deb strives to leverage the intersection of customer-value, business-benefits, and corporate capabilities. Through a combination of theory and practice, coaching and doing, she has helped institutes from startups to Fortune 100s, governments and NGOs develop user-centered strategies and work with teams to integrate these strategies into organizations’ overall plans of record. As a systems thinker, Deb has developed an array of frameworks, tools, and platforms to leverage the power of design and systems thinking at the team, group, organizational and global levels. She is considered a leading authority on Design Value. Deb holds an M.S. in Industrial Engineering and Human Factors and a B.S.E. in System Engineering.


Jeff Crowl, Project Manager, Scrum Master, & Scaled Agilist 
Jeff thrives in ambiguous environments, building consensus and engagement with teams and stakeholders alike. He brings more than ten years of project management experience from a range of sectors, including Fitness, Banking/Finance, IT, Healthcare, and Non-Profit organizations. Whether the project calls for Scrum, Waterfall or an agile hybrid of the two, he's ready to support the success of his clients.
