Apogee Hosts UXHK 2015

Apogee, our partner in the REACH network for Global Design Reserach, recently hosted their annual User Experience Hong Kong Event (UXHK) from March 6-7. Through presentations, discussions, and workshops, the event aims to bring together designers across disciplines to re-examine what it means to design meaningful experiences for both people and businesses. Speakers included Ted Kilian of Brilliant Basics, who discussed the importance of creating the right context for designers to work within, and a global panel from HeathWallace discussing the future of work. Plans for UXHK 2016 are already shaping up, for another convergence of innovative designers sharing their insights on what makes for exceptional user experience design.
