"Designing for People" (Bianca Bueno)

Design thinking is a valuable and underrated resource in addressing social problems. Where does design come in? Where people are in need and where government and organizations try to help, design is always present and working towards getting the help to the people who need them.

"Invisible Disabilities" (Carlo Oseo)

People with Disabilities (PWDs) experience challenges even inside the PWD community itself and how they get accepted -- especially those who do not have visible disabilities. Their struggles are beyond what we expect in contrast to their appearances, forcing themselves to act "normally" and trying to adhere to society's standards. Carlo will talk about such daily challenges and how we can help design better ways of accessing, navigating through, and structuring products and services.

"A Different Experience using the Kano Model Survey" (Ely Apao)

The Kano model basically shows how a product and service can tie in the customers emotions to find out how to make delightful products. The workshop will discuss how to use the Kano model in a survey to help determine a website’s information architecture and design layout.

This is a hands-on workshop the looks at how to form content structure depending of different personas.
