Design opportunities in the pandemic times + many more
By UMO.Design • Issue #3 • View online
Hey there UMO Family,
These are uncertain times, we are being vigilant and have been closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation. As far as the UXINDIA and Business Design Summit conferences go we will continue to do what is best and safe for our community members. This situation has disrupted our plans a little but we continue to remain focused towards achieving our mission.
“Our number one priority is the health and safety of our community members. #uxi20” - Bapu Kaladhar

Have a look at what the curve says! Safety should be the number one priority!

What does this mean for UXI20?
We usually plan the UXI conference in Sept-Oct every year. This year, things like curation and announcements might be a little delayed, but we are STILL ON! In fact, as a part of expanding our vision we are amping up our efforts towards Design X Awards and we will soon put out a call for entries, launch our website and announce the jury members.
We know for a fact that many of you block your calendars well in advance in anticipation of our UXI event. This situation is challenging us to be more disruptive and creative in our efforts. More details will soon follow. Stay tuned.
Celebrating International Women’s Day 🎉
Amid all this, let’s not get diverted from the wonderful women’s day celebration we had this year all around the world. At India, we have always celebrated women in design by organising women led panels, inviting strong and dynamic women to conduct workshops, give talks, judge, mentor and so much more.
This year we want to use this opportunity to call out all the Women in Design who have been pioneering, leading and disrupting to join us as a co-chair and spearhead this initiative! Please reach out to Kaladhar Bapu

Design - Jobs, Discussion, Tips and Portfolios
I’ve been having discussions with my team about setting audacious goals that allow us to have big bets that sometimes fail. Failure + learning = growth. Incrementally happens if you’re always playing it safe. #designtwitter

Think ‘community first.’ Don’t panic. Sanitise your hands, avoid crowded places and hand shakes.
