Ignite UX Michigan Celebrates Its Fifth Year
Hard to believe it’s been five years! I remember the very first Ignite UX Michigan event in 2013.

The annual event has been popular from the start, with crowds of people from Michigan and northwest Ohio attending each year (which is why there’s a new venue to accommodate more people!).
Congrats to Mike Beasley and Whitney Ferdon, Ignite UX Michigan founders, for all their work organizing Ignite UX Michigan.
Proud to say for the past two years, I’ve volunteered with the Ignite UX Michigan planning team, helping with promotions and social media.
