Irene Au // Design and the Self // UX Week 16 – Irene Au

Design, as the tangible manifestation of intention, has the power to shape how we think and feel. Conversely, how we create and what we design are the culmination of who we are as individuals coming together to make something for others. In this talk, Irene will explore how our inner state manifests in design, and why the best thing we can do to become better designers may be to work on ourselves.
