Do you want to learn more about design, but don't know how? Do you want to know what the difference is between design, UX, and UI? If so, then this one-day workshop is designed (yes!) for you. It is built for people who are either curious to learn more about design or who want to understand the importance that design plays in both business and private life. It aims to build a bridge between your role and the way in which you can contribute to the experience of your company's solutions, regardless of the area in which you work.
The goal of the workshop is not to make you a designer but to give you a sound understanding of what design is: introduce basic design principles, do away with prejudices, and above all, show that design is a fun and rewarding thing to practice. It is NOT a Design Thinking class nor will it explicitly focus on UIs or specific UI technologies.
The "Design Eye Opener" encourages dialog between attendees and trainers, makes heavy use of interactive elements, lets people experience visual, haptic, and acoustic aspects of design, and tries to build lasting connections. You will leave this class with a bag of aha! moments, stories to spread, a closer connection to design, and inspiration to learn more and dive deeper. Both fun and learning guaranteed!
