6 Ways to Experience the Magic of HOW Design Live Online

500_HDLOnlineLast week, I told you about the magical things that are happening at HOW Design Live Online. Attendees can experience a full 23 hours of HOW Design Live online from absolutely anywhere with an Internet connection. Plus, you can chat with your favorite presenters in live chat sessions throughout the two-week event!

This week, I have a few new things to make your experience even more magical.

First of all, you can get $100 off registration by entering code HOWLIVE14 at checkout. That brings your price down to about $13 per video—more than 70% off the retail price!

Second of all, we’re pleased to announce the live chat schedule for HOW Design Live Online. Meet the presenters who were far too swamped to chat at the conference!

Live Chat Schedule (each session lasts 1 hour):

  • Monday, June 9 at 3pm: Corwin Hiebert
  • Tuesday, June 10 at 2 pm: Marcia Hoeck and Ed Roach
  • Wednesday, June 11 at 2 pm: Hamish Campbell

Did I mention you can attend from anywhere with an Internet connection? That means you can experience DeeDee Gordon and Malcolm Gladwell’s magical presentation at any time of the day or night, or you can hop online and chat with Andy Epstein or Douglas Davis from just about anywhere you want. Just to clear this up, I thought I’d share the top 6 ways to attend HOW Design Live Online.

Top 6 Ways to Attend HOW Design Live Online

1. In Your Pajamas

I was pretty disappointed when everyone left to attend HOW Design Live, but when I learned about the online conference, I was even more thrilled about attending, if only because I learned that I could attend the conference from my sofa… or my bed… or just about anywhere. Aside from the chat sessions, I fully plan to spend Saturday, June 14 lazing about my apartment, enthralled by the wisdom of Malcolm Gladwell, Chris Converse, Brian Wood, Nancye Green and my other design heroes at HOW Design Live Online!

2. With a Cup of Coffee

I would never have survived my time in grad school without caffeine. (Come to think of it, I probably wouldn’t survive a week without caffeine right now!) And during that time, I spent hours upon hours lounging at my favorite coffee shop. Top in for a cup of joe—or tea, if that’s your style—and enjoy a video or two from HOW Design Live Online while you fuel up.

3. En Route

Okay, so not everyone can attend while commuting, and I’d especially advise against driving and attending at the same time. But if you ride public transit or carpool to work, what better way to squash the morning blues by enjoying a HOW Design Live Online conference session on the way to work? If you have a smartphone, the conference is in your pocket!

4. During Your Workout

I usually do about an hour of yoga when I get home from the office, and I always find it’s nice to have something to watch or listen to while I’m stretching. Get in shape and enjoy phenomenal design presentations at the same time by watching sessions from HOW Design Live Online while you’re burning it up.

5. With Friends

Movie night, anyone? Round up your design junkie pals, hook your computer up to the TV and play a few sessions from some of your favorite design experts. You can even have your own mini-conference, asking group questions for your favorite designers during their live chat sessions!

6. At the Office

Maybe most of the designers you know are at work. Once you tell your boss about the available sessions, she (or he!) will likely be as thrilled as you are about it. It shouldn’t take much convincing to convert that conference room into an excellent space for viewing the design tutorials and presentations from HOW Design Live Online! You could even take recommendations from your coworkers about what questions to ask the presenters during the live chat sessions to share the knowledge with the whole office.
