For this month’s Designer Drinks we’re going to be at El Cocinero, Friday, February 21st. We’ve move the time a little later (8:30PM) so folks can make it to the Remote Life + Innovation Hub Tour event at FSU. Come hang out with the creative community for a night of networking, drinks, good times, and good food. This months artwork by Chris Crouch.
About the Remote Life & Innovation Hub
Are you curious about what it’s like to work remotely? It continues to be a growing trend in our industry with no sign of slowing down. For our first meetup of 2020, we’re hosting a discussion at FSU’s Innovation Hub with Jason Beaird about his experience with remote life. He’ll dive into some of the most common questions and biggest misconceptions about what it’s like to work from home as a UX designer or developer. As a visceral bonus, Jason will be presenting by video conference from his home office in Orlando.
Jason works remotely from Orlando as a UX Team Lead with Paylocity. As an experienced “player-coach,” he has worn the hats of product manager, designer, front-end developer, and user researcher. A few of his more well-known efforts include conceiving and evolving The MailChimp Pattern Library and writing The Principles of Beautiful Web Design. He also helps organize Orlando’s Downtown UX Meetup.

Located at the heart of FSU’s campus, the Hub includes a Digital Fablab, VR Lab, Design Lab, and a variety of collaboration spaces designed to support face-to-face interactive co-creation, design thinking-style, and remote collaboration using online tools.
