💥 UpLevel and PowerUp with top Ux & Design tips, insights, actionables, inspiring talks, events & more 🖖 Curated by @jdallcaps

Last week I stumbled upon this Font Map from IDEO, enjoyed watching a short TED Talk on Fear-Setting, listening to episodes of Designer News Podcast, esp one featuring Mikael Cho, CEO/Founder of Unsplash (I have a very long commute and there a lot of good ones on that list, this is #12). Plus this fascinating read on how Slack is being used to fight crime!

This one is the SciFi and Design Issue. We have a long history and a love affair. And interestingly a penchant for complicated multi-dial or organic, intricate interfaces that flow, bend, extrude magically to our commands - without the need for any magic wand.
Plus, featuring our next DesignUp speaker and more events

DesignUp Speaker Announcement
Introducing DesignUp’s next speaker: Justin Bolognino (the “g” is silent) or JB (esp given the Indian penchant for abbr.) JB’s endeavours are threaded by experiential, real-time design and technology focused on revealing hidden human connections. The “Synchronicity Architect” is Founder and CEO of, creator, designer and curator of The Lab at Panorama, founder of Learned Evolution, #FEED powered by Twitter and was Creative & Media Director at Brooklyn Bowl from its inception. 
Justin’s works are a surreal, or hyper-real blend of music, motion, projections and mixed reality—creating immersive experiences beyond screens in the now!
