Designing for an uncertain future: We are back this month with another Strategic Design themed evening. Shorter and sharper than before. COVID-19 is an awakening call; we see vividly how it's changing our behaviours and the world around us. As designers, we are curious to know what we can do, how we design for this unprecedented time, and even more importantly, foresee what kind of future that we are designing for.

Midwest UX: In 2010, our founders brought together the Columbus chapters of the Interaction Design Association (IxDA) & Usability Professionals Association (UPA) to set the core values for Midwest UX. Our goal was to create a conference focused on creativity and rich in community -- with a grassroots feel across all UX disciplines. And unlike many national & international conferences, it has to be affordable and approachable for those who may have limited resources.
