Come jam with us!
Design Jam is a mini design hackathon that gets attendees to work together for a good cause. We will virtually gather in the community, collaborate with like-minded individuals, and build your portfolio – all while helping an incredible group, The Queer Design Club. Our mission for this Design Jam is to put together assets, ideate campaign strategies, and suggest tactics for spreading the word around the Queer Design Count.
ABOUT Queer Design Club: Queer Design Club’s mission is to promote and celebrate all the amazing work that happens at the intersection of queer identity and design worldwide—from LGBTQ+ designers’ contributions to the industry to design’s role in queer activism throughout history.
THE CHALLENGE: Create awareness and drive participation in the Queer Design Count
WHO SHOULD ATTEND? UX professionals, designers, marketers, researchers, developers, prototypers, data heads, civic hackers, leaders. We will be randomly pairing attendees in small pods to collaborate.
WHAT WILL THE EVENT BE LIKE? We will present and discuss the challenge at the beginning of the event. Groups of attendees will spend about two hours working through the concept and design on a solution of their choosing. At the end of the Jam, we will share and discuss our work. If you are uncomfortable showing what you worked on, you will not be pressured into sharing publicly. We want everyone to feel included and welcome.
WHAT WILL WE MAKE? At the end of the Design Jam, together we will have created many solutions to support real challenges for The Queer Design Club.
