Event description
How collaboration between designers and developers has been derailed, and what we can do to get back on track.

About this Event

Critical Mass is coming to Portland to present our next installment of Design Agents -- an interactive, expert-led speaker series where audience engagement helps shape the conversation about what the future holds for careers in design, and how our industry needs to evolve to keep pace.

Join us on November 21st for a discussion around what’s really preventing designers and developers from successfully collaborating, and the simple, longstanding solutions we’ve all overlooked. As the digital product design industry has evolved, we've created our own ways of working, creating methodologies like Agile to organize our design processes. But have our efficiencies begun to foster bad habits? Historically speaking, we are a young derivative of otherwise well-established design and engineering disciplines. It's time we get back to the basics of communication, integrating our efforts to make awesome products and experiences.

If that sounds interesting to you, come check us out at The Collective. Grab a drink and meet with our panelists after we have a collaborative discussion on how we can all work better together.

We know it's dinner time so we're happy to provide you with food and beverages.
