You probably know that Denver’s population has increased rapidly over the past few years - by more than 93,000 since 2010, or a 15.5 percent increase to be exact - and this growth is symbolized by the more than 30 cranes dotting the city’s skyline (check out the DBJ’s crane watch map here).
What does all this growth mean for our city and how we live?
Different designers are likely to have different answers. Builders, architects, and city planners all play a part in how a city functions; UX Designers focus primarily on how people interact with products. While their day-to-day work may differ, the groups have a common goal of creating designs that are useful, easy to use, and delightful to interact with.
