Design Hack Night

October 09, 2014 @ 6PM

An evening of conversation, making, and feedback, as inspired by the Tinderbox Hack Night. Come for a chance to share your insights and learn from your peers.


Introducing Design Hack Night, an evening of conversation, making, and feedback. Inspired by the Tinderbox Hack Night, Design Hack Night is a chance to share your insights and learn from your peers. Bring your projects, your laptop, sketchbooks, books - anything you’d like to share or work on.

We’ll start the night with a series of lightning talks focusing on a variety of topics from a tool/technique, inspiration, a book, a product launch, a thought leader, the weather or more - anything you’ve discovered that impacts the craft of design. No need to prepare any slides, but if you know you’d like to speak please email me at to guarantee a spot.

After lightning talks we’ll split into two groups - one will have open space to collaborate as a group (or solo if you so choose), while the other group will be a circle for giving feedback on work in progress. While we’ll have some soft guidelines on providing feedback, constructive criticism is - as always - paramount to the success and improvement of any product.

Serving food and plenty of drinks as well!
