Public Workshops, First course FREE

Audrey Crane Audrey Crane 1 min read

For anyone who’s been laid off or furloughed this year, we’re offering the first course of “Product Design Essentials” Sep 8-11th for free.

We’re beyond excited to announce public workshops for the first time. Four days, four hours a day, this program is the same material our own staff is trained on and that we’ve run at several clients.

We believe so much in this content as a way we can help our design community, that we are making this available for free to those who have been directly effected by COVID-19 and laid off or furloughed from their company this year.

Product Design Essentials

If you’re a Product Designer looking to build a stronger foundation, or a Marketing/Web Designer, UI Engineer, or even a Product Manager, this is the program for you. This is material our own staff goes through to take on the role of Product Designer.

Product Design Master Class

Already an experienced Product Designer? Then you know that you need to be able to influence much more than pixels on the screen. We call this the “work around the work” that makes it possible to create not just great design, but great outcomes.

We are focusing on helping internal design teams build their capabilities. These Product Design Workshops are part of that new focus, along with Coaching and Advisement (help hiring and managing a design team), and Staff Augmentation. We’ve launched a microsite that focuses on these flexible UX services that will keep your business moving forward → Learn more at
