About this event

With the release of the Apple Watch, the screen size that designers need to take into account just keep getting smaller. At the same time, product complexity and users' expectations continue to increase. How do some of Silicon Valley's best designers walk the highwire and maintain the right balance between these two seemingly opposed trends? On this panel, top design gurus will share their thoughts on how they solve for complexity in a multi-screen, multi-device world.
