LDX is a hackathon for designers. At LDX, you are a hacker designer whether or not you write code. You’ll spend the first three days getting trained on the basics of product design: user empathy; rapid prototyping; and compelling professional presentation.
Once equipped for greatness, you’ll spend Friday, Saturday and Sunday actually creating and delivering a product that you will pitch to senior executives of sponsor companies.
Have you ever been bucketed into one of the following categories?
Marketing. Brand Management. Product Design. Product Management. Engineering Design. Business Development. Entrepreneurship/New Product Creation. Consulting. Innovation. Content creator. Animation and Graphic Design. UX and Interaction Design.
All are welcome to apply for a spot at LDX 2017. In our experience, the people who get the most out of this tend to be people who are hands-on, willing to take risks, and enjoy working in teams.
