WE THINK PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT SHOULD BE RELEVANT, FUN, AND HUMAN-CENTERED.
Humans tend to learn new things best when we do it in social context. When we see someone else do it, learn how to do it ourselves, then teach someone else to do it.
We see humanity in computing, in product design, in digital marketing, in designing services and digital experiences. We want to help you maximize this wonderful thing- humanity, to understand it, quantify it and use it to make better work. Because we all need more of it.
We think you can become an advocate for the end user, even if you're not a quote-unquote User Experience Designer. That every project manager, engineer, designer, account manager, team lead, QA tester and infosec expert could use User Experience and design thinking in their everyday work.
That anyone making, selling, or supporting technology could be well-served to connect with the users of their products, or at least work with others to do so.
We want to help you and your team to make this happen, and give you tools to build your team from the ground up. Hang out with us and learn the basics of user research, prototyping, usability testing, accessibility, and how to plan, budget and execute all this.
We like to work fun, hands-on, relevant. We like to test hypotheses, and see things differently.
We are based in Portland, Oregon, and the Internet.
