THE EVENT

Tuesday 5th December 2017 @ Foolproof, 45 Folgate Street, E1 6GL

So… this should be fun!!

We are teaming up with the awesome Foolproof for an evening of UX Poker… no, sadly no-one’s getting rich or naked, but we WILL be ‘stripping’ back your design process and ‘enriching’ your creativity at Foolproof’s brand-new HQ this December! (Do you like what we did there?)

Originally created for their company away-day, UX Poker is a card game designed by Foolproof to get people who don’t usually work together – you know – working together.

Communicating your ideas and working effectively within a team are both hugely important skills within business and for UX it’s no different. This unique game will help build a structure to help you think more creatively, break the ice and work better in a team!

Facilitated by a diverse team of Foolproofers, from designers to practitioners and strategists, you will be tasked to come up with the best idea for a ‘Sector’, based on a random selection of ‘API’ and ‘Technologies’ cards. All will be explained!

Take away your experiences… and the game itself, to help improve your (and your team’s) confidence and creativity, no matter what ‘level’ designer you are!

With space for only 40 in this session, we would like to invite you straight from work. We will be networking from 6.00pm and the event intro will start at 6.20pm. There is a lot to get through in this session, so we will be ensuring we start on time!

With food and drinks provided, plus plenty of time to network, this will be an awesome opportunity to build your skillset alongside like-minded designers and speak with the lovely Foolproof team about the projects and potential careers available within their agency.

Hiring managers are welcome and if you are interested in hosting or sponsoring an event with us (and would like to get a taste of what we do), please get in touch with Myles McMorrow and we can hold you a ticket!

Tweet the event @TheUXCrunch and let’s get the ball rolling. We look forward to seeing you soon!!!
