New and Emergent Meets Legacy of Greatness at HOW Design Live

As a writer with an eye towards design, I’ve always been fascinated by the intersection of vintage and modern aesthetics. Old and new. A fresh perspective on an older concept …

There’s a sweet spot where the best of the oldies-but-goodies collide with emergent ideas and trends. And it’s in this precise place where HOW Design Live exists, thrives and grows.

HOW Design Live

HOW Design Live is (at Once) Old + New

How, you ask? No design conference is as committed to offering you the latest, greatest in design tools, speakers, concepts and thought leadership – while simultaneously preserving the tried and true, proven industry go-tos. HOW lives at the fold of classic meets emergent.

So what does the convergence of “old and new” have to do with you? A lot, actually.

Experience the HOW legacy:

  • Veteran speakers who continue to up the ante year-after-year will be back to draw captive audiences with their compelling messages. See time-tested speakers like Justin Ahrens, Stefan Mumaw, Sam Harrison and  Todd Henry, to name a few. These are proven, fan favorites, and they are part of the established legacy of HOW Design Live
  • A focus on tactical, practical takeaways that you can implement immediately and share when you’re back at the office
  • Access to engaging, approachable speakers who want to chat with attendees
  • An emphasis on networking to promote new connections and foster old
  • Industry-leading vendors sharing expert advice (and swag!) at the Exhibit Hall
  • Rub elbows with fellow designers who care about the things that make you tick
