Designers Unite: Shockoe to host AIGA

We have a small but mighty design team here at Shockoe. Any given day one of us might be discovering needs from a client, drafting UI standards for another, then refining designs for the most intuitive and impactful experience. With so many facets to everyday workflow, the term “designer” has become a bit nebulous.

Design is more than just making visual choices, but at what point does “Experience Design” or “UX/UI Designer” become too vague? Where do things like research, and strategy fit in?

Join us for some fascinating conversation around the role designers play in technology and a team dynamic. We’ll share some of the things we’ve discovered along the way, both the things that worked and some that didn’t prove all that helpful. Most of all, we want to hear from you and get the dialogue flowing around this topic.

The Deets:

Cost of Attendance: Free
Time & Date: Thursday, August 29, 2019 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM
Location: 3122 W Marshall Street #201

What to Expect:

  • Get an inside look at the roles our design team plays here at Shockoe. Explore our workspace and get a taste of our processes (and perhaps some beer too).
  • Flex your thinkin’ muscles in a fast-paced collaborative brainstorming exercise. When the world of mobile development is framed in sprints, design must be too. We’ll share a practice that has helped us expand our idea of what design truly is.
  • Socialize, network, and snag free food & drink to your heart’s desire. We’re keeping things casual, and we know happy hour truly is the main event.

If you’re interested in hanging with the design team here at Shockoe, sign up. Let’s get our design on.
