This was the first Design Camp of sorts in Delhi. TLabs, a Times of India initiative, organized this with support from the design community here. My talk was going to be a review and critique of popular web products. However, after talking to people at the event, we figured it would be more valuable to critique and offer suggestions to startups that were already present there.
Quality UI/UX Designers are the biggest missing element in Indian startups’ global foray. TLabs is attempting to bridge this gap by creating a series of bimonthly bootcamps with the to build a UI/UX/Design ecosystem in India.
What will happen at this Bootcamp?
This bootcamp will have two parallel tracks – first one will be a Tutorial Track, the second will be aClinic Track. Startups can nominate themselves to participate in the clinic track where an expert will spend 30 min with you to help you understand nuances of design that are relevant to you. Individuals are welcome to either get education in the tutorial track or spend time networking with startups. Those of you who are interested in spending their time at the Clinic please write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
