Junior UX Crunch: UX Fundamentals

A junior UX meetup. Lower price point, but the same great content to grow young designers or those transitioning to UX.
Tuesday, 9th July 2019. 18:00 – 21:00. WeWork, Aldgate Tower, 2 Leman Street, E1 8FA.

User experience is often referred to as “the science behind design.” What is meant by “science” here is the rigorous methods that comprise the UX process and provide the human insights and hard data to support and validate design decisions.

Join us as we sit down for another fantastic evening of theoretical insight, case studies, networking and more!

The Junior UX Crunch

As of January 2018, The UX Crunch split to offer this new event, exclusive to creatives entering the world of Experience Design.

These events will offer a large variety of topics, all geared toward building confidence in the soft and technical areas which comprise the UX Design skillset; planning ahead to your first role in the industry. We will be joined by design leaders to understand how they hire & develop their design teams, as well as discussing how to add value to the design process and document your experiences.
