Don’t miss a thought provoking keynote presentation by the multi-talented Jeffrey Zeldman. This thought leader in web and interaction design will share his views on where we are now—and what’s next. He’ll draw from his experiences as the founder of studio.zeldman, a web and interaction design studio in New York. Also, from his work as publisher of A List Apart, a leading journal of web and interaction design thought “for people who make websites.” Zeldman is also co-author, with Ethan Marcotte, of Designing With Web Standards. It has been translated into 15 languages. He also co-founded the transformative Web Standards Project which he led from 1999–2003.
The educational benefits of attending HOW Design Live every year are profound. The 2017 conference program is organized into three primary themes: marketing & strategy, branding & packaging and design & creativity. Sessions will focus more on the multidisciplinary and multiplatform type of work that’s being done rather than the work environment. You’ll still be able to create a conference schedule filled with sessions that address the unique challenges and opportunities of your particular work environment, but you’ll also find a program that addresses the evolving challenges and opportunities facing designers today and how to prepare for the role of design in the future.
At HOW Design Live, we believe that design has power. You just need to know how to wield it effectively. We also believe that creatives are their most powerful when they converge. Come to HOW Design Live 2017 in Chicago. Ignite your passion and create your future.Read More
