Sign up to Hack Design @ this weekend’s Hackathon!
Svpply, Kickstarter, Vimeo, Tumblr, Forrst, Foursquare. It’s a great time to be a designer in New York. We’re an art and design focused town and our take on the startup bubble is often being led by design centered founders and services. SVA’s IxD program and Techstars’ Design Hackstar program are also pointing to and creating new opportunities for creatives in the Big Apple.
And this weekend there’s another chance to lubricate the evolving startup-design relationship at the TechCrunch Disrupt Hackathon. This is the third time I’m helping organize this carnival, but it’s the first time we’re specifically trying to partner awesome designers and hackers together. Pheobe Espiritu and Michael Yap will be leading the Design Trust - a group of experienced designers who will lend Design/UX support to the hacker teams. I can’t wait to see what comes out of this! If you’re a designer and want to play, Sign-ups are still open.
