I can’t explain the goosebumps and tingling sensation I had when we went live with that dazzling video! It was amazing. I hope you enjoyed the LIVE Q&A sessions we hosted with Ben Reason and Christopher Noessel. They were very cool and patient!

So glad that we finally revealed all that’s happening at UMO Design and revealed our plans for community engagement for the future. And am so proud of the show we all put up today as a team!

I also would like to thank all our Day-1 speakers who took design to the next level today — Leslie Fountain, Yuseung Kim, Jayasri Nagrale and Indi Young. They surely did make it a memorable Day-1 experience!

We will continue to ride the high of design goodness for the next few days. You will receive a newsletter for the whole week which will give you a recap of UXI20 and all that happened at UXI20. Stay Tuned.

Recap of DAY 1 at UXI20

This moment, the moment when things turn into reality!

We were amazed by the response we got from the audience at the conference. Can you believe we’ve had nearly 2000 messages from the chat. Thank you for all the love, please keep it up, your interest in the conference keeps us going!

We started the day with Bapu/Shyam who unveiled plans for community engagement. They were followed by Ben Reason who spoke about a case study on Drone Delivery System which his studio worked on. Drone Delivery System sure struck a chord with our audience, they bombarded Ben with questions. He was very patient and answered as many as he could within the time we had. I had the chance to speak with him before the conference, he was super enthu and very flexible.

Ben was followed by Leslie from Foolproof, Singapore who spoke about re-inventing yourself and businesses using Design Thinking process. Then came Kim from Google who passionately spoke about the design system he and his team built for Google Ads.

Chris spoke about principles for AI, his talk was filled with very cool examples of some of the best AI systems out there. I was curious about one of the examples he showcased which was a car racing game, he is yet to tweet the name of the game me. I’m waiting for your answer on that Chris ! ;)

To close the day, we had Indi who gave a keynote for nearly 50 mins on becoming a purpose driven designer. That interestingly I felt aligned a lot with our vison for design education.

Side note, see UMO Design’s newly launched school which offers Masterclasses by expert designers and certification courses with mentorship.
