Join us for a presentation with Donald DeSantis, User Experience Designer at LIFFFT.


How do brands bring design thinking into the fast-paced, documentation eschewing, whipsaw world of agile? Brands must move quickly to compete with small startups. But speed and agility often feel at odds with design and true innovation. This talk outlines three approaches - infection, dissection, and mutation - that designers can use to turn speed-centric agile teams into innovative, design-centric organizations.

 This is an event you don't want to miss.


Donald is a user experience designer and partner at LIFFFT, a company that brings the speed and innovation of startups to major brands. An occasional writer and speaker, Donald has been featured in GeekWire, GigaOm, and The New York Times.
