"?Move Fast & Make Things"
As product designers, experimentation should be at the very core of how we operate. However, the reality of doing so when faced with working inside large slow-moving corporations, or small cash-strapped startups, can often seem near impossible. Lee Simpson will talk about his experience in bringing design-driven thinking to some of the world’s most popular brands, and discuss how ustwo takes innovative digital products to millions of users, quickly and elegantly.
