Drawing Inspiration for UX & Teamwork from Classical Music
Classical music is generally seen as a bastion of the elite, a sophisticated and esoteric sphere that’s inaccessible to the general public... and so is the design and tech world. From making newcomers feel welcome and accepted to collaboration strategies and practices, the nuts and bolts of these two worlds share many analogous practices and challenges. We’ll look at ways that this centuries-old art form can inform and inspire our work in design and beyond.
