HOW Design Live Recap: Day 3

Continuing the streak of stellar experiences, Day 3 of HOW Design Live was better than ever!  From informative tech sessions, to incredible keynotes on identity and product design, to incredible companionship with our fellow creatives, the whole experience was positively elevating.

Check out what happened today!

First of all…. THIS:

We heard from the great Paula Scher, who shared her insights into identity design.

Next, a host of speakers broke out into their respective sessions. We heard from Jim Krause, Facebook’s Jonathon Colman, Hershey’s Ron Burrage, Cheryl Heller, Diane Domeyer of The Creative Group, Sebastian Padilla of Anagrama, insightful attorney Katie Lane, Noah Brier of Percolate, Christopher Cashdollar, Conor Smith and Jackie Schaffer.

  Brian Wood offered some great tips in a helpful workshop on designing for the web.

Later, Michael Bierut took the stage.
