Designing Together Across Continents

Aarron Walter, InVision, Buzz Usborne, Help Scout and Linda Eliasen, Help Scout

As the largest all-remote company in the world, InVision is on the cutting edge of the distributed work movement. While we would never trade the benefits of remote work for office life, it does come with its own set of challenges—like keeping designers who are separated by borders and time zones working together as a team.

Who better to learn from than those overcoming the challenges of remote work head on? Join Aarron Walter, VP of InVision Design Education, and Linda Eliasen and Buzz Usborne from Help Scout, another 100% distributed company, for a candid discussion on what it means to design together—when you’re miles apart. They’ll cover some practical ins and outs, including:

  • Tactics and tools to keep designers inspired and connected across time zones
  • Protecting design-share channels from unconstructive commentary
  • Considerations when working with far-flung teammates
  • Using video to get the feedback you need

Can’t make it or want to reference the webinar again later? No worries—we’ll share a recording of it plus links to other resources so you can watch it on your own time.
