We organized Design Leadership Drinks across New York, Toronto & Vancouver and the first ever Design Leadership Summit in Canada last fall. We just launched our new website with the conference videos from Jared Spool, Jasmine Friedl and many other amazing design leaders from across North America!
Go listen to the panel discussion, it was pretty good :)
It's interesting to see how different these leaders are (and their companies). As a design director myself I found it really interesting.
The director from Shopify used a lot of biz-lingo.
I'm looking for some leadership right now at Grin. Google Mimblewimble and click news. I will write a post on it today and publish here tomorrow, but you can come now. It just launched and you will be one of the few designers there with me. I am fighting for our home there. You know how it is with engineer dominated spaces. And these are the most brilliant people in the space. Everybody will come to Grin. You can help me with the culture there. We must have the best everything. If interested, jump into Gitter > Grin/design. Come support my argument and lets balance them out so we can bring this to the world.
I am the second biggest critic of Grin. The fact that I joined is amazing to me. I know what the issues are, and that is why we need everybody to come. Talk soon. PM me on Gitter. Do not miss this. It is not cryptocurrency Moon Lambo bullshit. This is third generation bitcoin by some original people who created it. This is their second attempt at creating digital cash. You can be there at the beginning. See you there.
