DA Webinar | Under the Hood | Māori Design

July 17 @ 12:15 pm - 1:30 pm

You are invited to join us online as two designers walk us through how a design project worked. Each designer will share the brief, how they approached it, talk us through that internal feedback loop – This is too hard! It’s not working! Why did I decide to be a designer?! – and out to the other side to client love and project success. All of these insights in a quick conversational talk and additional time for live Q&A.

Under the Hood is a live event from 12.30pm – 1.30pm. Grab your sandwich, tea, coffee or kombucha and pull up a chair with your studio friends or in your WFH office. You can enter the event from 12.15pm on the day.
