Work used to be simple. Processes were straightforward, everyone had clear-cut roles and responsibilities, and designers could get by on pure talent, creativity, and flawless execution. Now, everything's changed. Design involves more than just aesthetics, roles and responsibilities overlap, and successful outcomes require soft skills that aren't taught in school. Effective collaboration can help overcome these complicated challenges.
Join Rebekah Cancino and Shaina Rozen from Togetherly for a hands-on workshop about "the people side" of design. Together, we'll discuss and practice how to successfully navigate design projects by learning:
• How to effectively work with different types of people
Food and drinks will be provided.
