BPD#12 – Collaborating for Success at Figma

January 12, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm CET

Join us for the first meetup of 2023 at Figma’s offices inside Mindspace. You’ll need an Eventbrite ticket.

For this one, we picked a suitable topic: collaboration. Often taken for granted, but it’s the one thing we should never overlook! So we are happy Carolina De La Sota, Head of UX/UI at Axel Springer is joining us to share her insights.

We’ll meet Figma’s new advocate for Germany / DACH and we’ll also have some nice Figma swag and raffle a few Figma hoodies 🙂

As always, we ask that you arrive early. Doors will be closed after 7:15 pm. If you can’t make it please cancel your ticket to leave space for others.
