In the second of ourseries,we're partnering up with Crypto NYC to bring two experienced Design Directors who understand designing for blockchain at scale. Connie Yang & Sarah Mills from two of the largest blockchain companies in the world: ConsenSysandCoinbase, are flying in to drop some knowledge on establishing design systems & faciliating design teams.
Oh, & if you haven't readthis epic postfrom Sarah, you should.
Raw Haus' newest series, Design x Blockchain, is designed to answer these questions & more by exploring some of the technicalities & fundamental differences in designing for blockchain. By bringing together experienced creatives already working in the space with those who are interested, we hope to break down some of the barriers to entry.
If you're a creative or don't have a technical background, this series is for you! No prior experience in blockchain necessary.
All talks are7 minutelightning round presentationswalking through a design learning process, followed by acombined panelwith the speakers.
