No Mom, Design is a Science too: Using Design for Problem Solving

Workshop description: Design is typically associated with “making pretty things”, but this workshop proves that creativity and science can get along. In this workshop, we’ll 1) explore what design thinking is, 2) understand a real-world problem using design thinking, and 3) solve the problem to serve real people.

Ali Angco is a UX designer who believes that design should help everyone make the right decisions. While completing her degree in Neurobiology, she traded her lab coat for Figma and never looked back. Today, she’s reimagining insurance at Slice Labs and is also looking to bring more Filipinos to the tech industry.
