Pi Design Competition

Challenge the best UX experts from our network!
12 December 2018 – H. 7 PM – Via Indonesia 23, Rome

We firmly believe that, as technology is becoming a commodity, emotions will become the key element of technology in the future. That’s why we promote the meeting between engineers and designers.
For the first time this year, our traditional knockout competition will be dedicated to UX designers, who will be called to design innovative solutions to everyday problems during our amazing end of the year party.
