Two months ago, I moved from Atlanta, Georgia, to the Bay Area to begin a new chapter of my career as a design director here at Adaptive Path's San Francisco studio. It has been everything I had hoped it would be and more... but I do find myself missing at times the incredibly vibrant and growing design community in my former home. With the influx of Fortune 500 companies that moved into the area the last decade, Atlanta experience strategy and design practitioners grew in number, expertise, and influence. It was exciting to be part of that growth and to see first hand all the great work and passion the city had to offer.
Which makes me even more excited to announce that our next UX Intensive will be coming to Hotlanta this fall. UX Intensive is our four-day crash course on core concepts and methods in Experience Strategy, Design Research, Interaction Design, and Service Design. As the name implies, each day is jam packed with engaging content and several fast-paced exercises to help participants learn by doing. It's exhausting but rewarding. And having taught at our last event in Amsterdam, I can tell you the Adaptive Path staff has a blast meeting all the participants and providing career advice and staying in touch well after our four days together come to an end.
So, I can't think of a better place to take our show on the road to next than Atlanta. I'm looking forward to introducing my new west coast workmates to the community and culture that continues to produce incredible design talent and work.
See what's in store each day and register at the UX Intensive site.
See you in October!
