How ’08: Day 1

Design Conference Recap: I'm here!


So I’m finally here. My first How Conference and the excitement is palpable. Even though I’m way over dressed, (memo to me: pack sneakers and T-shirts next time) it’s a great feeling to be in the midst of like-minded design-ophiles. It’s one thing to virtually be a part of a community but there’s no substitute for face-to-face interaction.

Thanks to the great Boston public transportation (next memo: set alarm for 30 minutes later) I have an hour to kill before my 1st session: InDesign Deep Dive.
The rest of the agenda for today:
Networking Lunch
Studio Tours
Kickoff with keynote address: “Creating a Culture of Innovation”
and Opening Reception

More pics later but for now…


The conference center at 6am on the 1st day… no coffee in sight



Registration desk… see what I mean about the dress code?



view of the Mac store from where I’m sitting…. mmmmm

Drew's degrees in Illustration, 2D animation and Broadcast Design, and his volleyball skillz mean he can get your design done and play well with others at the same time. He’s the Creative Director at Paragon and will call you out if you start hanging out with shady-looking fonts and messing around with whacked-out color palettes.
