The gentle art of design critique

David León
Director of UX design at InUse

Join this talk on giving, getting, and making use of design feedback. Feedback is one of the most under-appreciated, quick and powerful ways of improving any piece of work. But people don’t do enough of it. They don’t know how to, don’t feel they have the time, or just find it a painfully awkward experience. David will be sharing practical advice on the art of design feedback and giving you some mental tricks surrounding how to enjoy having your design critiqued and how to critique other people’s designs without anyone feeling uncomfortable.

What's fika? ☕️

We Swedes prefer not to translate the word fika. For us it’s much more than a regular coffee break.

Fika is much more than having a coffee. It is a legitimate reason to set aside a moment for quality time. Fika can happen at any time, morning as well as evening, at home, at work or in a café. It can be with family, colleagues, friends or someone new. We Swedes love to fika several times a day and in most workplaces the fika break is a given time to have a cascual chat over coffee with your colleagues. Sweets with fika are crucial. Cinnamon buns, cakes, cookies, basically anything sweet will pass as acceptable fika.
