Description

This is the first workshop of a Series about building empathy into design hosted by Promeets. We will cover topics such as

1. Product design thinking + Customer development

2. TBD: Voice Design + Conversational UI

3. TBD: Unique relationship UI and AI have to one another + the future of UI, UI & AI, etc.

We welcome open-minded UI designers who are willing to accept critical feedback.

About the workshop:

Be-Customer Focused. Everyone has heard this phrase before. From product designers, managers, even to developers, we all have to understand the customer-centric thinking. That’s why Design Thinking is really important if you are designing a new product, whether it’s software or hardware, consumer-facing or enterprise.

Design Thinking is a methodology used by designers to solve complex problems and find desirable solutions for clients. It draws upon logic, imagination, intuition, and systematic reasoning, to explore possibilities of what could be, and to create desired outcomes that benefit the end user (the customer). In a simple way, Design Thinking is starting with a problem (e.g. people want to read more, but don't have time) and looking for a valid solution (e.g. audiobooks).

In this workshop, Vince will kick off the session with a presentation on design thinking and customer development, then we will form into groups to work on a few exercises using design thinking to solve real problems. Vince is leading a 3 hour intense workshop so everyone can walk away with a deep understanding of the topic.

We will send you a worksheet to get your ideas following! It’s a great chance to have others help with your ideas, as well as receiving hands-on advice and feedback from Vince! The workshop is limited to 20 people. Reserve your spot today!
