  • SPECIAL MEETING...DIFFERENT NIGHT...DIFFERENT VENUE. Please read!
    For the KCDesignCore August meeting, we'll be combining with the UXPA (User Experience Professionals Association - KC Chapter) and will have the opportunity to attend the August 1 premiere of DESIGN DISRUPTORS, a documentary produced by InVision. Please note, this is ONE NIGHT EARLIER than our normal meeting night, and it is the replacement for our August meeting.
    DESIGN DISRUPTORS will premiere in major cities around the world on August 1, and we're pleased to be on top of it as we join with UXPA for this one-night-only event, held at the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City, for registered/ticketed attendees.
    If the success of Apple has seen the rise of the product designer, then the fact that several billion dollar companies were started by designers confirms that design is driving innovation across the world. People who are aware of this new phenomenon might start to wonder: what gives design its power to disrupt the world? The new documentary film, Design Disruptors, invites us to take an intimate look into the processes, perspectives and approaches of the leaders at the world’s foremost technology firms.
    Among them is Airbnb, Coursera, Dropbox, Etsy, Eventbrite, Evernote, Facebook, Google Ventures, HubSpot, MailChimp, Netflix, Pinterest, Salesforce, Spotify, Twitter, Xero, Zendesk, whose combined valuation is worth more than one trillion dollars.
