Galvanize Seattle Study Hall: Product with See Seven

July 13, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Study Hall: Product with See Seven Purpose Design

In Season 2 of HBO’s critically acclaimed comedy Silicon Valley, the central antagonist proclaims, “I don’t want to live in a world where someone else is making the world a better place better than we are.” The humor in the line emerges from how closely it often mimics the phrases we hear in the tech and entrepreneurial worlds, where purpose statements ring more hollow ever year
But, when it comes to designing products, purpose still matters. Your ability to not only describe what you are making, but also to illustrate why it matters to your potential customers and the community at large. Your ability to answer “who” and “why” makes a big difference to your product development. As purpose designers, this study hall will be a time to dive deep around the questions.”


Donovan Richards:

Purpose and brand mean everything. It is the essence of who you are. It is your mission on the wall. It is the vision you have for the future. It is the core convictions that define your culture. It is your collective personality. It is your tag line. It drives your attitude and approach to business pragmatics.
Donovan Richards is a purpose designer for See Seven. His passion centers on helping others better understand and implement their purpose and brand throughout an organization.
