About our speakers

Jamin Hegeman, Design Director, Adaptive Path
5 Things I Wish I Knew: A Service Design Journey - From designing controls to driving organizational change, the path of an interaction designer can go in many directions. Increasingly, designers are being asked to apply their skills beyond products to services. In this talk, I will share what I wish I knew before venturing into the world of service design and provide advice for others who are on the path or thinking about applying their skills at greater levels of zoom.
At Adaptive Path Jamin leads project teams and helps define the creative practice. His work includes designing solutions in healthcare, education, finance, media, commerce, and social interaction for an array of clients, from large international organizations to startups.

Patrick Quattlebaum, Managing Director, Adaptive Path
The Softer Side of Design - The design process can be applied to solving problems as small as making a user interface more usable to addressing some of society’s most wicked problems. There’s a direct relationship between the scale of a design problem and the need for stronger soft skills. If you want to solve a complex problem and make an impact, you have to do more than thinking and making; you have to lead. In this talk, Patrick will share essential soft skills needed to design at scale and how to build those skills to the betterment of your career and the world around us.
Patrick craves taking on the most complex design problems he can find regardless of the medium or context. He passionately advocates for elevating the humanity within institutions to ensure both business and community sustainability.
