Why should you study UX/UI Design in Sao Paulo

Booming design communityBetween its perfect weather, craft-based culture, and superb geographic positioning in South America, São Paulo has been the epicenter of a Latin American design boom. Perhaps one of the best signs of this explosive growth is the meetup group Design Thinking para Startups, which attracts over 5,000 members. Gathering every few months, they discuss everything UX/UI, from design sprints and Value Proposition Design to new product ideas.
World renowned design firmsAn essential element of São Paulo’s massive tech expansion is its numerous powerhouse design firms. Bringing big-name investors, clients and design talent into the city, these companies are paving a new way for design in the tech world. One such company is Key Ideas, which boasts clients like Nestle, Colgate, Samsung and many others, let alone the design talent required to maintain such notable clientele.
Evolving event landscapeIn lockstep with São Paulo’s incredible design companies and ecosystem is its ever-expanding range of UX/UI conferences and events. There’s UXconf, an annual conference that brings together the Brazilian user experience design community. As well as DEXCONF, a “deconference” where attendees share each other’s experiences through collective discussions, teaching and learning. This collaborative environment is just one of many unique design gatherings in São Paulo.
