Event description

Description

This event is a great way to get feedback and advice on something you’re working on from cross-government design colleagues.

It will be a friendly environment to share work in progress and get help that you can use immediately.

You can bring design work at any stage - a sketch of an idea to a working prototype. It can be interaction, service, graphic or content design.

Design critiques are a great way to:

  • Get feedback from experts outside of your project and organisation

  • De-risk your work in a safe space

  • Benefit from the user-centred design community hive brain

  • See what’s going on across government and how other user-centred designers work

  • Understand how to run a design critique


Who it's for

The event is open to any designers, content designers, user researchers, and product managers working in government who want to get advice on their work and contribute to the cross-government user-centred design community. It is open to anyone who works at any level of government (including civil servants, public servants, contractors and local government)


How the day will work

The day will begin at 10:30am. Please leave enough time to collect your pass, find the room, get a coffee and take a seat before it starts.

We’ll give a short introduction on how to get and give the best feedback. Then everyone will have a chance to get feedback on their work in small groups of 4-5, with 45 mins each.

You do not need to prepare anything before the day, but you should be ready to talk about the context of your work - who are the users, what are the user needs, what is the organisational obejctive and what assumptions have you made to create this work.

Please commit to the whole day. This only works if we support each other and give everyone a turn to present to a crit group. If you are unable to attend for the whole event please do not take a ticket - we'll run more crit days in the future. If you are no longer able to attend, please return your ticket as early as possible - we usually have a waiting list.



You can read about how design critiques help teams collaborate in this blog post.

These are some posters about giving and receiving feedback.
