RE:DESIGN/UXD 2015 San Francisco CA

RE:DESIGN/UXD 2015 will take place May 18 + 19 in San Francisco. Like our other RE:DESIGN events, there are no panels – instead we focus on small-scale discussions led by UX/UI leaders that involve everyone in the room. Our thought leader and Symposiarch for this year’s event is Erin Malone, Partner, Tangible UX LLC.

The theme for this year is Renaissance: Modern day UX designers need to be well versed across various disciplines and interests to bring the best results to their design projects. Experiences are no longer limited to the screen and are global in nature. What do we need to understand and experience ourselves in order to make better experiences? What do we do to stay fresh, to stay inspired, to feed our souls which in turn feeds our design work? How do the things we do outside the job roll back into our approach on the job? Let’s explore these questions (and more) together.

We’ll announce our initial speakers shortly. Registration is now open and includes two days of sessions, lunch both days, and our evening activities. Last year’s event sold out, so register early.
