Boulder Startup Week 2013: How Startups Get To Great Design - May 17th

In just a couple of weeks, Boulder will host Boulder Startup Week 2013 (#BSW13). The annual 5-day event keeps getting better with more and more participation from local businesses all coming together to celebrate the awesome startup culture of Boulder.

Last year, we showed our support by creating and hosting an event called Startups + Great UX = Great Success. We were joined by folks from around the world for an afternoon of fun and insightful conversation. This year, we're doing it again but changing the focus a bit.  

Here are the details...

How Startups Get To Great Design

Startups are all about build, build, build. But we know users love refined design. How do you find time for design when you’re building nonstop? We’ll hear from a panel of talented designers working inside local startups and agencies (Mocavo, Birdbox, Slice of Lime, and Viget) who will share their experiences helping tech startups get to great design. Prior to a moderated Q&A session, four panelists will briefly share their experiences and work.

Last year's event was a huge success and we hope this year is even better. Jackson Fox, Senior UX Designer, will be the event moderator. Among the four panelists will be our own designer, Blair Culbreth. If you're interested in attending the event, please visit the Eventbrite page for more information and to register.

Viget believes strongly in being involved with our local communities and supporting the growth and development of local talent. If you're local to one our offices and have an idea for how we might collaborate, please feel free to reach out to us at If you're in Boulder (or coming to town for Startup Week), we hope to see you on the 17th at 2pm!
