Let's talk about Digital Product Design! Practical talks with lots of take-aways and plenty of inspiration.

We often say "Yes" to speaking opportunities. We love to share our experience and talk about the work we do day in, day out. To get an idea of what topics we are excited about, we created a little overview below ⬇

The art of prototyping. Martijn Pillich at the Digital Transformation Event

  • Running Design Sprints
    Where do you start if you want to develop a new product or service? What will it look like? Which features do your customers value the most? The Design Sprint is a process that helps you in answering these and other key questions in just 5 days (or 4!). We love Design Sprints and we have been talking about it a lot. At Meetups like the UX Cocktail hour in Rotterdam and UXify in Eindhoven. We've talked about them at clients, schools and incubators, such as Hogeschool Utrecht, CMD Rotterdam, TUDelft and Yes!Delft. Apart from speaking, we also organize a full-day masterclass on Design Sprints.
  • Digital transformation in action: The Art of Prototyping
    This talk is all about how to use prototyping techniques to envision the future. What is prototyping,  what different flavors exist currently out there. And how do they fit within your process?
  • UX Design. What, who and how.
    UX Design is a pretty new word with a lot of interpretations and also; misunderstandings. This talk explains what UX actually is, who is involved in creating user experiences and how to design them. You can watch the talk here (in Dutch).
  • UI Animations
    Animation is becoming increasingly more important in digital product design and has proven to be of great value to the overall user experience. The use of good well thought out animation can engage, guide, trigger and delight users. We also host the UI Animation meetup.
  • Car UI: Putting digital car interfaces to the test
    Hike One started a platform to put car interfaces to the test from a user perspective. We collaborate with Autoweek to test the Human Machine Interface (HMI) of new cars on the market. This talk is all about our research and findings on car UI.
  • The business of design
    What you need besides talent to succeed as a designer. How long does it take to design an app? What kind of user research do you need? And what’s the going rate for a digital designer? In this workshop experts from digital product design agency Hike One answer these and many more questions about selling, planning and running digital design projects. An insider’s view on the business of digital design.
  • Introduction to Behavioural Design
    Our behavioural design Guild is on a mission to use design to change people's behaviour for the good. Want to learn more about behavioural design? This talk is for you!
  • Your work as your new school
    We gave this lunch lecture at TU Eindhoven in collaboration with Intermate study association. Our Ivo van Bon talks about how we create a learning environment within Hike One.
  • Our Holacracy Journey
    We love to talk about our wins and loses while implementing Holacracy. Lots like it, others find it hard. Definitely not an easy ride. Matthijs Collard, Hike One founder, explains why we choose Holacracy, what we learned from it, and what we would do differently. We can also organise a taster during a lunch break!
  • How to onboard and keep Generation Y?
    What has this to do with Digital Product Design you might ask? Not so much. It has something to do with company culture. How to get the right people and keep them. We learned that we do things a bit different than in other companies. And other companies can learn from this. This talk is given by Hike One's co-founder Matthijs Collard. He has given the talk at several business events with entrepreneurs and business owners in the audience.
  • Talks about cases
    We have quite a few talks on cases. For example about the design of the Philips TV Remote, the ANWB Wegenwacht app or the design of the RMC travel information service.
