What a day?!
On April 18th our eyes were opened to a whole new digital and design world! As part of Leeds Digi Fest a whole bunch of incredible people gave up a day of their time to come up with solutions and ideas to help us increase efficiency and improve our work with the children of Leeds.
Our new friends at Hippo Digital hosted a Design Sprint, Jam, Hack as part of Leeds Digital Festival. 4 teams worked all afternoon and evening problem solving, collaborating, designing & creating to help us be more efficient and engaging; freeing up more time for direct work with the children of Leeds. We were blown away by all the ideas, designs and solutions that came out of day. One team came up with an idea that could reduce our volunteer training time by 85%! Amazing!
Some of the ideas that were developed we’ll be able to implement and use almost immediately while many of the volunteers from the day have generously offered to keep on developing their designs for us to use in the future. As an ‘open’ event all the ideas and designs will be able to be used by other charities & organisations.
BIG BIG thanks to everyone who participated in the day! And a HUGE thanks to Hippo Digital for being such excellent hosts – we loved all the sweets & ice lollies!
