ABOUT THIS EVENT
Nowadays, designing great products does not mean creating a specific visual solution without larger business considerations. Instead, we’ve seen the rise of the Product Designer who consider and balance user needs, business viability as well as technical feasibility when creating products. In our 3rd edition of Stampede Makers, “Unpacking Product Design” at Fave HQ in Bangsar South, we will be looking at what being a Product Designer involves, their processes and how they strive to solve problems and bring value to users and businesses.
This time, industry veteran Wu Han Ngeow, VP of UX and Design at iPrice Group, joins us as our Level Up speaker. With nearly 2 decades of experience from designing websites to broad-impact digital products, he’ll be priming us with the 3 kinds of Product Designer he’s encountered, their traits and what they need to be empowered to reach the epitome of Product Design.
Wondering what it’s like to get started as a Product Designer? Our own Product Designer, Fadzlina Fuad, will give you a peek into her first year at the job with how she ended up here, what she’s learnt and her struggles and triumphs during her Get Real talk.
So join us as we cover what it means to be a Product Designer, and leave with actionable ways to mature your Product Design practice.
