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.

— Ashlee Ritschdorff | Graphic Designer, Federal Signal

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.

— Joe Stern | Creative Director NAVC

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.

— Frank Dyszler | Web Designer, Henry Schein, Inc.

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!

The Community

HOW Design Live is where inspiration, community and creativity converge in a 3-day event that you can’t afford to miss. Founded in 1985, the HOW brand began its life as a print magazine. In 2022, HOW Design Live is celebrating 32 years of serving the business, creativity and technology needs of creative professionals.

HOW Design Live is all about connections. Every year, relationships form organically among HOW Design Live attendees, and even among attendees and speakers—relationships that lead to opportunities and lifelong friendships.

The power of the HOW Community is massive, inspiring, welcoming and easy to join. You’ll find your tribe at HOW: a core group of fellow creatives who call themselves “HOWies.
