Spectrum Tokyo Meetup #07


About This Event

Spectrum Tokyo is all about new design trends and digging into broader perspectives in technology and design.

This is our in-person meetup where designers (and non-designers) gather to talk randomly about design, share ideas, and casually connect. We feel that the local designers have little chance to speak English and interact with international talents, which is such a loss of opportunity in many ways.

Therefore, all Lightning Talks and mingling will be in English. Please note that the crowd will consist of various English levels, and we insist that speakers of all levels pay respect to each other to make an encouraging, friendly atmosphere for all. We look forward to meeting up with all of you!
