David Turner Wants to Know: Why Do Designers Choose to Be Designers?

The conference is called HOW but the real question is “Why?” Why do designers choose to be designers? It’s a question Turner Duckworth co-founder David Turner revisits often in his own work, providing design leadership to global brands including Coca-Cola, Visa and Samsung as well as entrepreneurial start-ups.

In his Why Design? session, presented by The Dieline Conference, David will be walking you through this and other questions in order to help you remember why you became a designer and empower you to become an even better one.

Did you become a designer to change the world? To get a seat at the table? There’s no better time or place than HOW Design Live to reconnect with the creative you’ve wanted to become—and remember why you became a designer.

With this theme in mind, check out these other speakers HOW Design Live has lined up for you:

David Carson, Graphic Designer, will present a Keynote: Never Snap to Guides. David says, “Be prepared to remember why you got into this field, to feel reenergized, and anxious to get back to work.”

Helen Stringer, Design Director, Corporate Capability, Procter & Gamble will present Design Inside: The Changing Role of Design Within Organizations. “Designers often act as the connective tissue in a business, bridging between the more traditional pillars of Marketing and R&D,” says Helen.

Jeff Greenspan, Creative and Strategy Consultant, will present Make What’s Important to You Important to Others. Jeff says, “The skills honed while selling brands and services can also be used to promote our personal values. We can inject popular culture with a vision of the world we want to live in and get people thinking (and acting) in more productive and positive ways.”HOW Design Live is in Chicago May 2-6!
