About Design Jams

Design Jams are one-or-two-day design sessions, during which people team up to solve engaging User Experience (UX) challenges. There will be one challenge for all teams, to be announced on the day of the Jam. No need to prepare anything! It’s not a competition and there is no prize to win. The format of this Jam is largely inspired by the Design Jam framework developed by the Mozilla Labs.

Who should attend Design Jams

Anyone really – Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) & Design Students, Interaction Designers, UX Researchers, Information Architects, UI Designers, Web Designers, Graphic Designers, Developers & more… The day aims to improve collaboration skills and help attendees learn and practice various UX techniques including but not limited to Research, Brainstorming, Sketching, Wireframing and Prototyping.
