From 2018-2020, I was on the board of Richmond UX (since rebranded as Richmond Design Group), a local UX Design networking and event promotion group in Richmond VA. The group consisted of designers from Capital One, CarMax, ICF Digital, and other local organizations.
Richmond UX provides educational and social opportunities for professionals in Central Virginia to engage in User Experience. Our members come from a variety of disciplines, including interface design, human-computer interaction, information architecture, interaction design, content strategy, web, and application development, usability, and product management.
We were involved in holding events at 1717 Innovation Center, CarMax Downtown, VCU Brandcenter and other locations around Richmond VA. We were a proud host city for World IA Day in 2019 and have partnered with organizations around the city to help expose new and diverse audiences to UX, Product, and Service design practices and methodologies.
