The high-tech industry of start ups and huge tech firms moves faster today than ever before. Agile software development methods were created to keep pace with business and now UX designers have created tools for designing apps, websites, and other digital products in a lean and efficient way.

One valuable tool that can help you keep pace – the rapid ideation workshop.

Matt’s workshop methodology enables teams of stakeholders to identify tactical design solutions for websites, apps, and software products in a matter of days instead of weeks or months. During this event Matt will introduce his methodology and walk you through a series of exercises that will prepare you to conduct your own.

Students, start up founders, product managers, marketers, and design enthusiasts are welcome.


For the last fifteen years Matt Dente has worked in the user-centered design field crafting user experiences for web and mobile. Matt has worked as a Visual Designer, Information Architect, Interaction Designer, and User Researcher on projects for companies such as Time Inc. (People Magazine), Condé Nast (Epicurious, The New Yorker), Facebook, Zynga, Clearwire, AT&T, Starbucks, and Ritani. In 2008 Matt founded Fell Swoop where he leads project teams in designing innovative yet pragmatic design solutions that help clients realize bottom line results.
