October 20, 7pm Inspiration + Process

Where do ideas come from? How do you start a process in order to come up with a good idea? What are the best methods or tricks for working creatively?

November 17, 7pm Design Beyond Visuals

UX, impact, and systems design - let's discuss aspects of our every day lives that we feel could be designed better - our healthcare systems, public transportation, etc.

Jessica Walsh started Ladies, Wine & Design in New York after considering why there are so few women creative directors. She believes we can change that through mentorship and championing others' work. Austin lady-designers - let's meet up and prove her right!

Read her original musings and other articles below:

Numbers show that there's a very small percentage of women leading the creative industry. However, the people we could be most inspired by most are other talented ladies. Let's build a list of women we have admired, worked with or had our eyes on! Email me if you want to nominate someone for this list, especially women in Austin.
