At Studio Banana we believe in radical collaboration. It's the only way we know in order to deliver user-centered design products, services or experiences. We constantly explore new ways of fostering collaboration, from imagination workshops, to participatory user journeys, through crowdsourcing, crowd games and gamified challenges. In our gig at UX Romandie we'll explore some of these principles and discuss them with the public.
