There’s Just Nothing Like a HOW Conference

Working among the design community, I’m never short inspiration or amazement. I’ll open the latest design book, watch a video or explore the most recent apps for potential review … Basically, I’m surrounded.

This said, I’d still argue that there’s nothing like a HOW show. It’s pure invigoration and intellectual stimulation at it’s finest. We cover every topic in designfrom creativity to business and in-house issuesand since 2012 we’ve been knee-deep in the brave world of web design with the HOW Interactive Design Conference series. In fact, we’re completely convinced that HOW conferences are THE arena where more inspiration lies than any other platform or touch point.

Sure, we understand conferences and we know inspiration. It’s our lifeblood. It’s how we breathe. We see our events as unique opportunities to reach the design community. They’re driven by the acute and emerging needs of designers—the design process, tools and problem-solving. Our events are personalwe’ve established a pulse on the needs of our audienceand they’re simultaneously rigorous and fun to boot!

Why Attend a HOW Conference?

HDL; HOW ConferenceAt HOW shows, you’re among “your people”: Yes, you’ll rub elbows with fellow practitioners of the craft who care and want to understand “what’s next” in the world of design. Our events are the proverbial shot in the arm you’ve been craving for months-and-months to infuse your work with newfound creativity (no matter how long you’ve been knee-deep in a project or how stale you may feel).

The HOW Interactive Design Conference is no different. If you haven’t attended a HOW interactive event, you’re in for a treat. We’ve leveraged all of the goodness and magic of HOW Design Live with an interactive bent—specifically serving the needs of web designers with actionable takeaways to improve your work life…
