HOW DOES IT WORK?
Each team of solver will be assigned one digital product/service to work on. Over the two days, teams will utilize user reasearch and UX design techniques, also involving selected end users via the Smartcrowds.net channel. After having understood products's value proposition, teams will first focus on its pain points; after that they will explore unserved needs; they will then identify suggestion for improvement of the usability, and design new interface mockups.

Because you'll get to know other students and professionals passionate of digital interaction; you will apply the leading UX design and service design methodologies to real products; you'll have a chance to challenge your UX design skills, learning from mentors, and being noticed by the participanting companies.
