On December 7, more than 170 UXers in the San Diego community gathered at the Lafayette Hotel to close out the year in an old school, Hollywood style celebration. Thanks to a partnership with UX Speakeasy, our shared final UX event of 2016 was also our largest and most glamorous.
Against a backdrop of rat-pack era nostalgia, guests enjoyed signature cocktails and delicious hors d’oeuvres, in between sets on the dance floor and red carpet photography.
Our heartfelt thanks goes to the support of our sponsors and hard work of the UX Speakeasy and SDXD volunteer board members.
The night was one of a kind and the beginning of a new tradition for the design community in San Diego.
Special thanks to Michael Novido for producing this special compilation of the night’s festivities.
