Ideation Speed Dating Protocol

A protocol where every participant has an opportunity to receive feedback from, and provide feedback to, every other project.

This Gets You
to quickly share your project to receive specific feedback from another designer, and to learn about and provide specific feedback to their project. 

Keep in Mind
this protocol is very quick, keep your project description short to allow for more feedback time. When providing feedback, share not only the What, but also the Why you think this is valuable.
