Fire Up Figma UX Design summer session
share

Pair up with Peers & Prototype with George Longwill, UXTalks

Brew a coffee*, fire up your Figma and spend Saturday morning in the company of fellow designers.

George Longwill will pair you up with peers to work on a fictional project brief or non-profit cause scoped to the time available and split into teams to design something together. At the end of the session, all participants will take part in a short summary and critique session.

Reasons to spend valuable Saturday time designing:

  • Make new design friends outside your usual company/college/house – exchange notes, keyboard shortcuts, resources, fun facts
  • Get practice presenting and critiquing design work in a relaxed and safe environment
    There is possibly no better way to learn design than pairing with another designer
  • Great way to get started on some work you can build on for your portfolio
  • All this and more from the relative comfort and safety of your own home!

The collaborative workshop duration is one hour and a half and will take place on Saturday, August 20th from 10.30 am to 12noon.

*No tea allowed (only joking!)

 

Fire Up Figma is part of our Design Summer Sessions programme.
