What does it mean to be a design leader today, or in the nebulous yet accelerating future? Even more crucial, how do we articulate this significance to a recruiter, an executive, or an investor — so as to gain their respect, if not their outright trust?
In this talk, Uday will traverse the ambiguous yet vital terrains that encompass design. We’ll begin with a tactical micro view of craft & logic, while politely sidestepping tired tropes such as UX unicorns and viral memes such as UX vs UI. From there, through a progressive disclosure of strategic and even philosophical aspects, we’ll arrive at an unapologetically “meta” view of what it means to be designing design itself. Together, we can define design’s value in truly humanistic terms — and in a manner that even recruiters can appreciate!
