Event Description

Hey, we know you're not actually cheap or lazy... you just live in the real world! Your project is behind schedule. Your funding got cut. Your team is understaffed and doesn't know the first thing about the users! How can you be expected to put together user profiles or personas under those circumstances?

It's not a lost cause. You've still got options!
We'll cover:
different types of research to consider
sources of important and FREE information
how to make use of data you didn't even know you had to make something great - your design!
Got a special conundrum? Send us a note to make sure we can touch on your specific topic.
