How to Kick Ass While Wearing Many Hats

Presented by Kuan Luo


Kuan discusses the many challenges of being in a one-person design team and how to overcome them.


Being the only designer at a company is hard. You wear many hats: designer, product manager, editor, researcher, and occasionally office furniture coordinator. In this webinar, you will learn how to drive prioritization, get useful critique, and leverage your non-designer co-workers... you'll be a powerhouse design team of one in an environment where design is a foreign language.
