Programa Vostok IV: Mission accomplished.

Programa Vostok

All good things must come to an end, yesterday —after 6 months— was the last class of Programa Vostok IV.

It was such a great pleasure to be part of this amazing group of people: AlbertoCarlosDannyInma, MaríaMarta and Pau. We shared a lot of time: learning, thinking, talking, discussing and understanding Design.

I just want to say “thank you” to all of you, we started as a group of professionals trying to grow as designers but now, we’re also a group of friends. I hope you find whatever make you happy after this program. We should find time in order to share thoughts, work, experiences and discussions about design one time per month.

Thank you too Javier Cañada, for sharing all your knowledge with us. I really appreciate your effort to verbalize and explain in such a great and easy way all the concepts we learned. Thanks for being my mentor, thanks for changing the way I see Design and also my role as designer.

As some of you may know, I’m not a big fan of academic learning, big classes, official certifications and that kind of stuff. But this time that was really different. Having a small group of people from different areas, sharing interest in Design was a powerful combination.

That leads me to say that size of the class, a balanced group, a common goal and trusting in your mentor are definitively a must if you want to really learn and grow in any kind of subject.

 

I’m glad to have met you guys, I’m proud of being part of Programa Vostok IV,

Thank you!

I’ll be attending Startup Weekend Madrid as coach this weekend


Hi again guys!

One of the advantages of living in Madrid is the vast list of events celebrating in the city each week. One of this events is Startup Weekend Madrid.

Startup Weekend is an event where different kind of people form teams to develope a business idea in a weekend. Attendees’ backgrounds are roughly 50% technical (developers, coders, designers) and 50% business (marketing, finance, law).

Maria Encinar is the main responsable of organizing the event in Madrid, and she invited me as coach to help other teams in the process.

See you tomorrow!
