Designing products within a team isn't just about having the most amazing designs. It's a combination of work ethic, understanding your user, building relationships, and most importantly knowing who you are and believing in yourself. Whether someone is working directly on a game or game engine tools, this way of thinking can help navigate success regardless. This session is a journey through success and failure, concluding with practical approaches to dealing with real-world situations.


Attendees will hopefully walk away understanding how important understanding yourself and building relationships is to the design and development process. They'll also leave with additional ways to approach similar situations.

Intended Audience

UX Professionals of any experience level, especially people looking to break or transition into the industry, anyone dealing with imposter syndrome, or even experienced professionals just looking for additional ways to handle difficult situations or ways to empower others. No prerequisite knowledge is required.
