HOW DESIGN LIVE IS WHERE CREATIVITY, INSPIRATION, AND TECHNOLOGY CONVERGE

We believe that design is powerful, inclusive and can change the world. We bring together some of the most remarkable design thinkers of our time and innovative design leaders to inspire and educate our community of makers, thinkers and creators.

THAT’S A WRAP!

WOW.  Hard to believe we just wrapped up HOW Design Live 2020!

Yes – it’s been different – but once again, the magic of HOW was SO evident. Your feedback has been incredible!  At a time when we’re all missing the magic of in-person connection, we hope you still felt the creative energy of HOW – and we hope you feel empowered by some of the messages we heard last week:

  • You are not alone
  • Be authentic. Being yourself is one of the most courageous and rebellious acts there is
  • Design can (and should!) solve problems
  • Creativity is in our DNA. We all have it – but we need to nurture it
  • Rest, recovery, and reflection are essential
  • Believe in yourself and your work and be persistent

We hope you’ll continue to engage with us through our Virtual platform through February 28 – we encourage you to stream the sessions you missed on demand to keep the inspiration flowing. Please continue to engage with our sponsors as well: Workfront, Lucidpress, Wrike, Mailchimp, International Paper, The Creative Group, SCAD, Red Paper Plane, ZMags, and Dell Technologies.

TESTIMONIALS

HOW Design Live has been a destination for creative professionals for nearly 30 years – but don’t just take our word for it.

HOW gave me the creativity boost I didn’t know I needed. I left feeling motivated and excited to start on new projects at work. It even gave me time to think about projects I was currently working on and gave me time away from the computer to sketch and really allow myself time to brainstorm – something I know we all worry about spending too much time on.

So much inspiration and professional experience in one place. I can honestly say How Design Live 2019 has refilled my creative bucket. This is a must-attend event for all creatives and marketing professionals.

This was my first show and I definitely received more than I expected. There were many tips, and exercises thrown around that hold a lot of weight. As a graphic web designer, I forgot how much I love actual design. This show really inspired me to get back in touch with what I love.

This design conference was exactly what I needed at this point in my career! As a freelancer, I have been feeling isolated and stagnant. It was the shot in the arm that I needed to get motivated. The experience of “being with my people” was so inspiring. I look forward to attending the 2020 conference!
