Scaling and Polishing is for Designers (not just dentists)
Speaker: Jill Quek & Lee Si Min, Product Designers at Zendesk
We’re designers at Zendesk, a customer service platform with 8 different products, used by more than 100,000 businesses in over 150 countries and 40 languages worldwide. Our Creative team of 40+ is distributed across 7 countries. Working with an international team for an international audience means we constantly need to think about design that scales. We’ll talk about the struggles, successes and surprises we’ve experienced as we’ve tackled scalable design.
