DesignMap is a San Francisco design studio made up of a diverse group of designers, researchers and front-end developers. One of our core values is the importance of continually learning about our craft and sharing that knowledge with others. Every Monday we set aside time for studio members to share case studies of their own work and “master” classes on a wide range of topics such as sketching, wireframing, presenting work, visual design, responsive design, and accessibility.
Internally, we began discussing how others outside DesignMap might find these useful, and started to think about how we might get this information out into the wild. The opportunity came when we approached Sharon Cardinal about hosting a meet up in our studio.
What was the workshop about?
Working well with team members, solving complex problems and being creative on demand are crucial skills for designers. We hope that by sharing our own experiences and knowledge via practical hands on workshops helps designers in our community sharpen those skills. We look forward to sharing future workshops, please get in touch if you have any requests or want to collaborate!
