Annual UX Design Slam 2020

PhillyCHI's 14th Annual Design Slam is a remote collaborative event in user experience design where participants compete in teams to develop the best design solution for a challenge faced by a local organization. This is a great opportunity to meet and work side-by-side (remotely!) with designers, strategists, and passionate user experience practitioners from all backgrounds.

Teams will be assigned to breakout rooms in Zoom, and each team will develop a compelling solution to this year's challenge presented by our partners at BuildaBridge. A delegate of each team will pitch their designs to the group, and a panel of judges composed of past Design Slam winners and individuals from our partner organization will select the winning design.

Participants of all backgrounds and levels of expertise are welcome - no specific tech or coding experience is required. Spectators are also welcome.

If you are registered as a participant but are not able to attend the event, please email phillychi@gmail.com ASAP so that we can update the team rosters.
