Real Talk: Product & Design through a new lens

Jan 17, 2019, 2:00 – 4:00 AM

About this event

At Asana, our Product Design and Brand Design teams have established deep connections, strategies, cohesive influence and value as we move faster to scale an increasingly complex product to millions of users.

Kick off the new year and join us for a night of real talk, about building and scaling a product-driven and design-led company. Enjoy candid conversation with fellow designers in Product and Brand teams, an experienced panel moderated by Asana’s cofounder, along with swag, drinks and bites made by our in-house culinary team.

Our Real Talk events are meant to create a safe space for candid conversation about pertinent topics that people across the tech industry care about. In this Product & Design event, Asana’s co-founder Justin Rosenstein will moderate a panel to openly discuss our successes and challenges in building and scaling a product-driven, design-led organization. You’ll hear from Asana’s Head of Product, Alex Hood; Product Design Manager, Sara Kremer; and Brand Designer, Maya Ealey. We will have an open discussion about building a design-centric culture, how Design and Product teams can foster healthy collaboration as a company grows, and some of our biggest learnings from 2018.
