Designing Women

When design and development teams work on solutions, opportunities arise to explore unchartered problem spaces. For Indi Young, the problem space is about understanding people and their larger purpose. Exploration of these spaces comes with letting go of thinking of solutions for a time.

In her talk, Young will outline what a problem space is, how to navigate the ambiguity of the problem space with empathy, and demonstrate techniques to explore problems and bring creative solutions. We hope you will join us for this free event.

Many thanks to UX Speakeasy and SDXD for partnering with us.

In 2001, Young co-founded Adaptive Path, a groundbreaking UX agency with the mission to transform communities through design.
