San Francisco UX Workshops

September 26 and 27, 2019

With Nathan Curtis and Dave Malouf

  • We’re bringing two Design Operations experts—Nathan Curtis and Dave Malouf—to San Francisco in September to teach day-long workshops. These are a great opportunity to deepen your design skills and learn with peers—not to mention get away from the office.

    Take one, the other or both workshops; ticket prices go up August 28.

    Want to bring this workshop in-house to your team? Let us know.

    Scalable Design Systems

    Design systems guru

    The role of design with large organizations is expanding, spreading across product teams and influencing decision-making at higher and higher levels. This scale makes it increasingly challenging to align product teams to deliver cohesive, consistent experiences efficiently across a customer journey.

    This workshop exposes you to the broad range of those considerations – planning, design, building, documenting, and other practices involved—to equip you with tools and activities to start, spread, and sustain a system yourself.

    Design Operations Essentials

    Consultant, Coach, Teacher

    This workshop helps design leaders and managers apply service design mindsets and methods to their own design organization so they can increase the value their design organization contributes to their larger organization. We will review the makeup of an operational model for a design organization, a canvas for insight discovery of breakdowns in your current operational model, and finally, use service blueprinting to imagine a new holistic design operations model.

    If you are in the early stages of implementing design operations practice in your organizations, this workshop will teach you both a broad and flexible definition of design operations as well as tangible activities for how to start.


    Contact us and we’ll be glad to help.
