Just about six weeks out, and the HOW program team continues to add sessions to this year’s HOW Design Live agenda. Here’s a list of recently added sessions you may have missed:


The Trifecta of Process Management — speaker Jeni Herberger will share strategies for creating a more efficient and effective workflow process, one where clients value your expertise, follow your rules and sing your praises.


Typeface Mechanics — noted typeface designer Tobias Frere-Jones will teach you how to tackle the most challenging and most overlooked aspect of type design: visual tricks that make letters more readable and understandable to the eye.


How to Critique Digital Work — Chris Butler promises strategies to improve the ways we talk about, evaluate and comment on digital work — all to keep the project true to its original mission.

Plus, we’ve added a range of technical and expert sessions hosted by design industry partners, including:

  • Haptic Brain, Haptic Brand with Dr. David Eagleman and Lana Rigsby, focused on the neuroscience of touch and how it creates a more memorable brand (presented by Sappi).
