Have you ever felt like your designs look just like everything else out there?
Design = technique + art. We apply our own style and our personal visual languages within the context of cultural and industry signifiers. Each product, each project, has a unique identity that can be communicated through design to delight viewers. We’ll talk about style, visual language, and signals; the rules and how to break them; exercises to find your style through sketching and code; and how to work with product teams and clients to discover a project’s unique visual identity.
Suitable for designers and front-end developers of all levels of experience; bring a sketchbook to follow along.
