Rise and Design: Designing with Data

Friday 14th April: 10:00 – 12:30

Please Note - this is a hybrid event so we'll be in person at NDC and on Zoom. The ticket options reflect this so please choose according to your own preferences. We will endeavour to ensure that the online event is just as enjoyable and useful as being there in person.

Design is an inherently creative process, but sometimes cold hard data can be really useful
