Designing For Cities

April 11 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

  • This event has passed.

Designing a print piece or a landing page comes with its own challenges, but designing for cities? That’s a feat in itself. Join us for a discussion on the building the ultimate user-experience for well…us. Urban planning not only affects how we interact with a city and communities today, but it can affect generations beyond ours.
